The ESRI Shape (SHP) file format is a vector format created by the Environmental System Research Institute. SHP files support point, multi-point, polygon, polyline and multi-patches.

This file format contains three files:
Main file: *.shp
Index file: *.shx
DBase file: *.dbf
for each boundary.

The three files must be downloaded. Most GIS applications can read SHP files
