File extension .IMD
The IMD file extension stands for GIS Image Metadata, which is known as an Object Cloud Metadata (OCM) file generated by ER Mapper. It contains a Geo-referenced image map that helps you explore, visualize, and maximize the value of GIS layers in an organized way.
The IMD file format is used to capture relevant information about the GIS layers that are associated with the image map. This includes the spatial location of each layer, the time and date of last update, the geographic coordinate system, and standard rendering tools. This means the IMD file contains essential metadata and standard settings that can be used by both experienced and beginner users to quickly interpret and explore GIS layers.

Benefits of IMD File Extension
The IMD file extension provides many benefits to users of ER Mapper software. It helps save time by making it easy to locate and search for relevant image files, ensuring faster access to information. Additionally, it allows users to set preferences for their GIS layers in order to customize their experience. Furthermore, it simplifies the process of data sharing as multiple users can gain access to a shared workspace conveniently.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .IMD) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .IMD extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .IMD file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .IMD extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .IMD extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .IMD file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .IMD file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .IMD file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .IMD file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .IMD file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
