I tried to open bathymetry map to the ArcMap but I just can open .shp file but I could not open other files accompanied with shp file because of the file type. How do I import .dbf, .prj, .sbn, ,sbx, file to the ArcMap?
They are not supposed to be opened with Arcmap directly (except for dbf, which can be opened independently). They are being used when you are adding the shp file to the Arcmap!
description of each file:
dbf (database file): contains the attribute table of the shape file
prj : a textual file containing the projection system of the shape file
sbn, sbx: contains geometrical indexes of the shapefile
idx: contains attribute indexes of the attribute table
Once you add a shapefile to the map, these files are being used implicitly.
