Open Civil and Survey Data Exchange

LandXML Data Exchange

LandXML specifies an XML file format for civil engineering design and survey measurement data. The primary goals for providing a standard data format are:

  • Data exchange between software applications
  • Long-term data archival

Hundreds of software developers and government organizations around the world have adopted LandXML. LandXML data types include:

  • Points
  • Survey measurements
  • Alignments
  • Profiles
  • Cross Sections
  • Surfaces
  • Parcles
  • Pipe Network
  • and more...

The original was initiated in 1999 and then closed in 2012. Since LandXML has proven very useful to civil engineers and land surveyors, was created to carry on this format.
