MIF/MID is a file standard
used by MapInfo, a desktop mapping system. AutoCAD Map 3D supports MapInfo up
to version 7 MIF/MID files.
About MapInfo MIF/MID Files
MapInfo MIF/MID format
stores both geometry and attributes (data) for features, and is
a set of two physical files that work together:
- .mif— Vector geometric
data. A single .mif file can contain many different types
- .mid— Attributes for
the geometric data.
The MIF/MID format does
not support ellipses with an angled bounding box (for example, ellipses
whose axes are at an angle to the X and Y axes), so when you export
such ellipses from AutoCAD Map 3D to MIF/MID, they are segmented. To
change the settings AutoCAD Map 3D uses for segmentation, edit the mapexport.ini file.
MapInfo MIF/MID has no
export driver options.
