What portions of ESRI Shape Files are imported?

Cartographica imports the shapes, databases, and projection information from an ESRI shape file. However, no project or layer styling information is currently imported.

For import, this means that you should (at a minimum) keep around the files that end in:

SHP shape geometry
SHX shape index file
DBF database file (containing column data)
PRJ projection file (contains CRS information)
CPG character set file (optional)

Any other associated files are currently ignored by Cartographica.
