Import and Export Formats

Mathematica 8 adds extensive support for new data formats in areas such as graph modeling and computing, geographic information systems, bioinformatics, 3D modeling, web services, code generation, and multimedia creation. In addition to enhanced performance and new features for existing import and export modules, Mathematica 8 introduces a plug-in architecture that allows users to seamlessly integrate their own file format converters with Mathematica's Import and Export functions.
