File type specification:

The ogr file extension is associated with the C++ programming language.

The ogr file stores a C++ open source library (and command-line tools) providing read (and sometimes write) access to a variety of vector file formats including ESRI Shapefiles, S-57, SDTS, PostGIS, Oracle Spatial, and Mapinfo mid/mif and TAB formats.

The C API is generally easy to call from other languages which allow call out to DLLs functions, such as Visual Basic, or Delphi.

The OGR/PHP extension enables PHP users to access the functionalities included in the OGR library. This extension can be used as built-in PHP or as dynamic library (".dll" on Windows or ".so" on Unix).

This extension was developed and is currently being maintained by DM Solutions Group. Special thanks go to Lars V. Nielsen and Hvenegaard & Meklenborg for funding the initial development of this extension and allowing it to remain open source.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .ogr file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
