The CBD file type is primarily associated with 'MapBrowser/MapWriter'. This is a file format for compressed binary map database (*.cbd) files, designed to encode features from a vector map database. Map data in this format can be used by the mapbrowser and mapwriter programs to browse and render raster map images from the vector data. This format encodes data line graph (DLG) data in latitude-longitude coordinates into a compressed format.
