Esri supports many data formats to ensure data and product interoperability. Formats include standard KML and GML as well as other widely used formats that are considered standard.

We build the ArcGIS platform to work with multiple data formats. The ArcGIS Data Interoperability Extension enables extract, transform, and load (ETL) for data formats and data models.
