.ditamap File Extension

Developer: OASIS
File type: DITA Topic Map File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ditamap. Files with the file extension .ditamap can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ditamap files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ditamap file?

DITA topic map files are saved in the DITAMAP format and are appended with the .ditamap extension. These are also associated to DITA documents (files saved in the DITA format and affixed with the .dita extension) with contextual information that corresponds to the structured topic map found in these DITAMAP files. The DITA format stands for Darwin Information Typing Architecture format and was developed by OASIS. These DITAMAP files are encoded and saved with XML-based specifications. Topic references are saved in these .ditamap files by using tags in the associated DITA document. The functionalities implemented into the DITAMAP and DITA document formats provide DITA document authors with the ability to organize topics in structured layers and outlines. Users of Microsoft-based systems can install the Eclipse software and use the XMLBuddy plug-in to start authoring, opening and editing the content of these DITA documents and its associated DITAMAP files. There are also versions of this software and plug-in for Mac and Linux platforms.

how to open a .ditamap file?

Launch a .ditamap file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ditamap file will open it.

Eclipse with XMLBuddy plug-in

Eclipse with XMLBuddy plug-in

XMLBuddy is an Extensive Markup Language editor, which is an Eclipse Integrated Development Environment Plug-in. This is a free (General Public license) software that gives syntax colors and adds templates to new XML document projects and DTD (Document Type Definition) presentations. This software edits XML, XHTML, XSD (with the help of syntax coloring), and DTD, which is a controlled validation software or XML schema. This software can also make DTDs from documents that are in XLM. This software has the feature to update dynamic outline views as well as improved support for automatically detecting XML encoding specifications. This plugin also supports XSLT and RELAX NG Compact syntax, and there is also a default schema that is applicable in the namespace or the root. The auto validation will show errors while the user edits the background parse's base. XMLBuddy can be installed (just like any other Eclipse plug-in) by unzipping it into \eclipse\plugins in the Eclipse directory.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ditamap files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ditamap. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
