Have you encountered a problem with a RDC file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a RDC file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your RDC file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The integrated GIS (geo information system) and image processing software IDRISI Taiga from Clark Labs uses the extension RDC for files containing a description of the contents of a rst file. The rst files contain raster image data in the proprietary format of the application.
In addition, even smp color tables and ref files containing geographic reference data may be present.
Earlier versions of the software used the extension doc for these files.

Programs which can open a RDC file

How to open a RDC file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the RDC file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a RDC file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support RDC files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a RDC file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all RDC files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with RDC there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the RDC file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the RDC file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
