Howdy once again!

I'm just entering the world of MS Streets and Trips - I found their GPS Track Logging, and need it desperately in a GIS...

Anyone out there know how to get from the .est format to a ArcGIS format???

Or if anyone knows of a resource I might dig up this info, it would be much appreciated!

Did you examine the .est file in a text editor? Is it clear text or binary? If it is clear text you can probably write a script to convert it into some usable format. Maybe if you post a sample one of us can take a look.

There is an ArcGIS desktop forum topic with the solution:

http://forums.esri.c...p...89&t=110643

which will refer you to:

http://rjdavies.user...iconverter.html

which is where you can download POIConverter, which looks like it can convert the .est file into something useful.
