What is an ies file and how do I open an ies file?

Data files that are created using the standardized IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) photometric format are called IES files; which is why IES files are deemed IES Photometric Data Files. These files save the light quantities and measurements, which is why they are useful for the simulation of lighting systems before they are installed in buildings. Aside from that, IES files are also useful for the examination of light source illumination for outdoor sites like roadways, etc. Since they deal mainly with lighting and photometry data, many 3D programs use this file format as well as most lighting manufacturers publish this file format. IES files are usually opened and viewed with the use of Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013, an application mostly used by designers and architects. It allows users to create architectural designs of the highest quality and accuracy. This application runs on a Windows operating system. The IES files can also be opened with the use of other applications such as AutoDesSys RenderZone, LTI Optics Photopia and Musco Sports Lighting Lumen Micro.
