Opening GML files

Did your computer fail to open a GML file? We explain what GML files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your GML files.

What is a GML file?

GML stands for Geographical Markup Language. Files with the .gml extension are most commonly associated with the Galdos Systems Open Geospatial Consortium software. This software is used by geographers to store geographical data. The GML files allow the geographical data to be transferred in a standard interchangeable format.

The .gml file extension is also used for Graphlet Graphscript files, Game Maker script files and NetRemote XML-based configuration files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
