The Nesstar Explorer is free software developed by Nesstar Ltd. 

It is used to browse the content of Nesstar files produced by the Microdata Management Toolkit Metadata Editor. A Nesstar file contains survey microdata along with metadata structured in compliance with the DDI specifications (information on the survey, files, and variables) and the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative. The Explorer includes a tool to export the microdata to common formats such as SAS, STATA, SPSS, ASCII, and others.
