Idrisi Binary Vector .VCT File Description

Surfer imports the Idrisi Binary Vector .VCT format. VCT files are paired with documentation files (.VDC). Sometimes there is also an associated .REF file. Each IDRISI Binary Vector .VCT file includes only one feature type: point, polyline, polygon, or text. Each feature is described by a single numeric attribute and one or more XY coordinate pairs.

For detailed file structure information, download the TerrSet Help System from Clark Labs.
