ArcGIS Map Package File
Esri's .MPK ArcGIS Map Package files are a specialized file format that packages and shares GIS data, including maps, layers, and metadata. This format allows users to easily share and distribute GIS data while ensuring the integrity of the information and preserving its formatting.
Using.MPK files offers the convenience of seamlessly transferring data between different ArcGIS platforms such as ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro. Furthermore, MPK files provide support for both vector and raster data, thus making them a valuable tool in GIS analysis.
When an MPK file is created, users can utilize a variety of components such as map layers, associated files, and metadata. This means recipients of the .MPK file will have access to all the information they need for their project in one place, rather than piecing it together from multiple sources.
