.mwx File Extension

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

what is a .mwx file?

The MWX file extension is known as the MapGuide Author Map Window File which was developed by Autodesk. It is a geographic information system which includes author map, map projection, background color, map layer, name, display attributes and location. MWX files do not store actual spatial data. They only describe how the data is displayed in a map and embedded in the webpage. They are stored in XML format and can be parsed and modified programmatically. MWX files are the XML representation of binary .mwf files. They are often used for sharing views of GIS, CAD, and map data between multiple users. It represents the logical structure of an Autodesk MapGuide map and is arranged in such a way that a developer can understand arrangement of map components and how they relate to each other and work together. Before creating a map with the Autodesk MapGuide Author, it is important t to create data sources. Files in MWX format can be opened with Autodesk MapGuide Viewer in Microsoft Windows platforms.

how to open a .mwx file?

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mwx 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, .mwx. 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.
