.cmap File Extension

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

what is a .cmap file?

Concept mapping applications provide users with efficient features for creating visual concept maps or mind maps, and an example of a file format used by a particular concept mapping software is the CMAP format. Files in this format are appended with the .cmap extension and are called CmapTools concept map files. Developed by IHMC to be used as project output files of the CmapTools software (also developed by IHMC), the content of these CMAP files include visual diagrams or charts, digital objects or images and text integrated with formatting and page layout attributes entered and embedded by the author of the CMAP file. This means when a user opens and views the content of a CMAP file using the CmapTools software, this application references the data stored in that CMAP file to display it for the user to see or to modify using the features integrated into the software. Since the digital objects, text and formatting attributes integrated by a user into a CMAP project are directly loaded unto the application by the software upon opening the CMAP file, users can share these CMAP files and perform brainstorming activities with the CmapTools program.

how to open a .cmap file?

Launch a .cmap 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 .cmap 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 .cmap files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cmap file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cmap file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

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