How To Interpret MapWarehouse File Names

RAQ's: Rarely asked questions


Anyone's who purchased aerial imagery or mapping data through MapWarehouse is familiar with the quick delivery of a zip folder containing a bunch of cryptically named files.

 

Did you know the string of numbers actually means something useful? By interpreting the file names you can find:

  • The data type (orthophoto, parcel, contours...)
  • The UTM coordinates of the file's insertion point
  • The year the data was produced
  • The data provider (FBS, Teranet, TRCA...)
