What is a .ICOA file extension?

.ICOA file extension has been classified as Graphics Files.

.ICOA is IBM Image Object Content Architecture (IOCA) bitmap graphics file

The ICOA file extension is related to Image Object Content Architecture. The The IOCA object class encapsulates an AFP image object. This Image object is a device-independent, self-defining representation of a two-dimensional presentation space containing the image data.

Currently, only simple image data is supported. Banded, numbered, and tiled images are not supported.

Because of the containerized nature of IOCA image data, several mandatory self defining fields are created when the BeginImage function is called. This also means that when the object is output, the mandatory self defining fields that end the image content and image segment must be appended with the EndImage function. Therefore, once ended, no more data can be added to the object, and no parameters can be changed. In addition, once data has been added, no image parameters can be added or changed. See the Image Object Content Architecture Reference for more information about IOCA image objects.

How to open:

Try to use XnView. XnView could open IBM Image Object Content Architecture with extension .ioca. Probably file extension .icoa could be a type mistake or special version of IOCA.

How to convert:

Currently there is no specific information available, about how to convert this file extension.
