Part 1: What is MPA File

What is MPA file? What are the differences between it and other digital formats? Primarily, MPA file is associated with BusinessMAP by ESRI which a mapping application whose daily duty is to transform the information from databases, contact managers as well as spreadsheets to maps. It can be generally related to MP2 and some MPEG-2 files which contain audio information only.

Usually, MPA is formatted in very small sizes with retaining the audio data only which may contain some minor audio losses. Anyway, simply speaking, MPA files are audio files compressed using MPEG-2 compression. When users have the need to preserve the original sound quality, this compression method could take you there and can allow you to reduce the file size.

Then, how to play MPA files? Technically, a proper program, like BusinessMAP would be needed. But this is not the common program you can get in touch in many users’ daily life. What’s more, even though you have obtained this program, some errors may still appear during the playback.

Alternatively, if you depend on some default media players, like Windows Media Player, once you have imported the MPA file to it, then you may receive some messages showing that “Windows cannot open this file”.
