Step 4
Import the exported data into your GIS application.

NOTE: Colors, labels, etc may not look the same as most GIS applications handle display formatting differently. And not all GIS formats will work in all GIS applications. Refer to your GIS application's manual for guidance on importing data.

Additional Info
Exporting layer data is not the same as capturing screenshots. To capture a screenshot of your map for archiving or uploading to the web, refer to the Capturing Screenshots tutorial.
