Supplemental Information

The layers listed below are present as ArcGIS shape files. To enhance print quality, this publication utilized a vector topography data set. The topography data set is not included with this release. Attribute information for the following layers (entities) is included in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. A codeset file titled, PIR2009-6B_codeset.pdf, contains the table explaining the properties of each engineering-geologic unit. There are two layers. Each layer is listed and described in detail under its own heading starting "Entity_Type_Label." Layers include:
 >eng_geol: polygons of engineering-geologic map units
 >border: outline shape of the study area


Metadata is the data about the data and answers "Who, what, when, where, how and why?" about the dataset. Please see the DGGS Metadata README page for information about our metadata.
