I have created a polygon shape file in Erdas Imagine 9.2 from a raster image. I want to export it to .dxf or .dgn for further processing. When I export the .shp to .dxf in Global Mapper, large polygons sharing the border of an image are missing. I tried in Erdas Imagine but the result was in Line String.

Would appreciate any help. Thank you

If possible then try to convert (.shp to .dxf) in QGIS. –  Sunil Aug 29 '13 at 6:33
