  6. How does the data set represent geographic features?

    1. How are geographic features stored in the data set?

      This is a Raster data set. It contains the following vector data types (SDTS terminology):

      • G-polygon (94)
      • Point (4)
      • GT-polygon composed of chains (1)
      • Point (4)
      It contains the following raster data types:
      • Dimensions 9984 x 16807 x 1, type Pixel

    2. What coordinate system is used to represent geographic features?

      Planar coordinates are encoded using row and column
      Abscissae (x-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.200000
      Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.200000

      The horizontal datum used is NAD83.
      The ellipsoid used is Geodetic Reference System 80.
