What is an .CSF file?

.CSF is GeoMedia Coordinate System File

Coordinate system file used by GeoMedia, a GIS application used to analyze geographic information and produce maps; contains the coordinate system for an output data file that has no system in place; includes the base storage type, which is either Geographic, Projection, or Geocentric, of the coordinate system.

A CSF file is used to define the coordinate system of input data with no specified coordinate system. It is created when the input data is exported to an output data format, such as the MicroStation V7 format. When it is exported, the CSF file is generated in the same location as the output file(s).

NOTE: To create or edit a CSF file, use the "Define Coordinate System File" utility included with the GeoMedia software.
