.lpk File Extension

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

what is a .lpk file?

These are files known as ArcGIS Layer Packages and data files that users created using ArcGIS Desktop developed by ESRI. ArcGIS Desktop is an application for software package mapping and visualization, useful for the increase and improvement of understanding and decision-making, automation of various cartography aspects, simplifying data design, as well as the creation and sharing of information. The LPK files created using this software contain not only the map layer but also the data of that map layer. This map layer data contained in LPK files can be imported into another map. LPK files are used to share self-contained map layers to others. LPK files can be uploaded and shared over the net using the ArcGIS Online service. Both ArcMap and ArcGlobe use LPK files wherein these programs are both parts of the ArcGIS Desktop software. The ESRI ArcGIS Desktop is used to open LPK files categorized as GIS files.

how to open a .lpk file?

a word of warning

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