Not sure if there's more to your post - those file types are resource files typically associated with an ESRI .shp file.
.shp files can be imported with the MAPIMPORT command.
Can you provide more information about what you are trying to do?
I have a bunch of files From another firm and need to open them. in Autocad I tried the mapimport but could only open the .shp files. Is there something that I am not doing? So that I can Import the rest.
Shape files contain GIS features. GIS features can be points, lines or polygons. They can also have attributes that are associated with the features. For example a polygon could have parcel attributes such as parcel number, owner, lot acreage, etc. The attributes are stored in the DBF file. The .PRJ file stores coordinate system information. The .IDX is an index file, etc. As was noted, those files are automatically utilized by the mapping software when you load the features so you don't need to do anything with them. In Map, if you enable the option to include the attributes, the feature attributes will be attached to the features as object data when imported and show up in the properties dialogue when you select a feature.
I have shape, dbf, idx, prj files into my directory, but they don't look connected. When use Mapimport, it asked me to import shape file. I didn’t find anywhere how to include GIS data into the import command. When polylines were appeared on the screen, they had no "Z" elevation. How can I make GIS data to be attached and read in ACAD Civil 3D or 2D.
How to enable the option to include attributes into my shape files? Should I use other command that MAPIMPORT. I don’t see these options to be available.
thank you for quick reply.
I just did that, but it still doesn't look like data was attached. I choose current drawing coordinate system as XY-IN (did not have a chose for Z-elv), when asked for attribute data, the only option I had is to choose the same shape file I need to import. I checked "Add unique key file. the data is not in the drawing. It still show me plain polylines with no Z-elev. I still have all the attibutes files in my folder directory, but can't attache it to my shape file
