DGN files are drawings created by and supported by CAD applications such as MicroStation and Intergraph Interactive Graphics Design System. It is used for creating and saving designs for construction projects such as highways, bridges, and buildings. The format is similar to Autodesk’s DWG file format and is considered its competitor.
A file with .emz extension is a compressed container of Enhanced Metafile (.emf file). It follows GZIP compression algorithm and takes less storage space due to compression. The small file size makes it more easy to transfer EMZ files over the network.
