.avl File Extension

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

what is a .avl file?

GIS applications are classified as graphic information system software, and files affixed with the .avl extension are used as data files by the ArcGIS Desktop software. This program is a GIS mapping application that can be used to create maps and other graphic documents with geographical details. These AVL files are also called ArcView legend files, because data stored in files with the AVL extension refer to details and pieces of information specific to certain objects integrated by the user into a GIS map created with the software (these GIS maps are files saved with the .avp extension). When a user accesses the content of an ArcGIS Desktop map, the software locates the AVL files corresponding to the map and displays the symbologic text content stored in these associated AVL files. The ArcGIS Desktop application can be installed in computers running on Microsoft Windows systems to implement support for these AVL files and to also start creating GIS maps using the features implemented into this application by ESRI, the developer of this software.

how to open a .avl file?

Launch a .avl file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .avl file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .avl files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .avl file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .avl file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

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