gdsii dump

GDSII is the worldwide recognize format to store layout design data. Its in binary form.

if you using unix,

od -h file.gds can view it hexa form.

anyway there is alot of free scripts to let you dump the GDS into ASCII/Text enable to let you see all the coordinates and datatype of particular layer.

Its a industrial standart format. Will send to fabrication in tape out process to convert into .DIE format before Masking.
