File Extension MXD

Information about MXD files and how to open them

The MXD - ArcGIS Map Document is the file format of an ESRI mapping application like ArcMap. Saved in a type of mixed file there are many parts to the MXD file including a map description, layout and embedded map objects. These types of files separate the information into partitions called storages and streams. Over the course of many saves these files can begin to fragment, saving the file as a new document should correct this issue.
