File extension: CVQ
File type: Compressed Format

Notes about the CVQ file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The CVQ file type is primarily associated with 'Coastal Vector List'. Coastal vector list data is a series of latitude and longitude points, grouped into a polyline segment, that defines the outline of a section of coastline. It is used for drawing coastlines in GPS-enabled navigation software. CVQ data files are the compressed (or quashed) for of CVL files. The data is saved in binary numeric format instead of the plain text used in a CVL file, resulting in smaller file size and faster loading.
