|MIME type||application/acad, application/x-acad, image/x-dwg|
|Type of format||Computer-aided design|
|Description||DWG is a proprietary binary file format used for storing two- and three- dimensional design data and metadata. It is the native format for several CAD packages including DraftSight, AutoCAD, IntelliCAD, Caddie and Open Design Alliance compliant applications. In addition, DWG is supported non-natively by many other CAD applications.||The shapefile format (SHP) is a geospatial vector data format for geographic information system (GIS) software. It is developed and regulated by Esri as a mostly open specification for data interoperability among Esri and other GIS software products. The shapefile format can spatially describe vector features: points, lines, and polygons, representing, for example, water wells, rivers, and lakes. Each item usually has attributes that describe it, such as name or temperature.|
|Technical details||DWG contains all the pieces of information a user enters, such as: Designs, Geometric data, Maps, Photos. The .dwg file format is one of the most commonly used design data formats, found in nearly every design environment. The DWG technology environment contains the capability to mold, render, draw, annotate, and measure.|
