Overview Description
Entity and Attribute Overview
The MSDA (Mapping Service and Data Analysis) Division maintains GIS data in Shape file format. The Mapping Division maintains GIS data in Arc/Info coverage format using ArcStorm, which results in various coverage and data management attributes being added to the files. These attributes remain when the files are exported to shapefile, although they may no longer applicable to anyone viewing or using the shapefile. There may also be relic attributes left over from conversion from CAD which are not currently used but are kept for historical purposes (typically, these will have a DXF suffix). In addition, because some files are maintained separately from attribute data, the shapefiles may have various key fields used to join with tabular data. These fields may not be applicable to current users of the data. For brevity, these types of attributes are indicated as "not used" in the metadata.
