.pos File Extension

Developer: Trimble Navigation
File type: Trimble Position File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pos. Files with the file extension .pos can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pos files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pos file?

Files affixed with the POS extension are files containing text descriptions of a position created by Trimble Navigation’s GPS devices, or Global Positioning System receivers. Trimble Navigation, a company providing advanced positioning solutions, is most noted for its GPS receivers, range finders and inertial navigation systems. A POS file contains an ID and followed by one or more locations, in longitude and latitude, per ID. It also locates efficiently by providing a list that shows the different coordinates that describe the point of source defined in a corresponding ATT file. To view files in the POS format, users may have to install the needed programs, such as My Topo POS2MXF. In the event that this program is unavailable in the user’s system, another option would have to be to convert it to another file format. Users may choose to convert it to PDF format for easier viewing.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pos. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
