File extension .PTT
|Microsoft MapPoint Template Format
The .PTT file is a MapPoint Map Template created by Microsoft. This type of file contains an exported map template, including vector graphics, street data, and other geographic information provided by the Microsoft MapPoint application. This type of file can be used to quickly create custom maps and perform geographic analysis in Microsoft MapPoint, which is part of the Microsoft Office suite.
Features and Functions
PTT files store all the information needed to create custom maps and perform geographic analysis in Microsoft MapPoint. This includes geographical data such as roads, rivers, places of interest, and terrain features; vector graphics such as lines, shapes, markers, and fonts; labels for towns or businesses; and other data specific to each individual map. All of this information can be saved in a PTT file for quick reuse while building maps.
PTT files are similar to other geographic information system (GIS) files like .KMZ, .GEO, and .GPX. But unlike those formats, PTT files cannot be opened up in other applications. However, since PTT files are compatible with the Microsoft Office suite, they can be sent as attachments to other people and opened up on virtually any Windows-based machine.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PTT) 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 .PTT 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 .PTT 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 .PTT 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 .PTT extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PTT file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PTT 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 .PTT file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PTT file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PTT file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
