Why Use ArcGIS Data Interoperability for Server?

Data Interoperability improves productivity by allowing you to build a truly integrated system or deliver complete models via your network or the Web, regardless of data sources (GIS, CAD, BIM/3D, and database) or format.

  • Use direct access to all standard data formats without converting between formats.
  • Share data with anyone by exporting to any of the supported formats.
  • Create custom data formats and transformations that support complex models.


The ArcGIS for Server Data Interoperability extension can be optionally licensed for both the ArcGIS for Server Standard or Advanced edition and is available for Windows only.
