POM file extension - Position / Offset / Meta data

What is pom file? How to open pom files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

The pom file extension is used for Position / Offset / Meta files. The pom file contains basic pieces of information on four lines.

They are, in this order:

  • the Earth-centered, fixed (XYZ) coordinates of the monument or reference point at a site in meters,
  • the north / east / up offsets from the reference point to the antenna's L1 phase center and the L1-L2 offset in height, all in meters,
  • surface temperature, pressure and humidity, in degrees C, millibar and percent saturation respectively to enhance the tropo model,
  • the antenna type using a conventional antenna ID


This pom file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

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 .pom 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.
