Supplemental Information

The metadata for the vector topographic base maps (Mount Michelson C-5 and B-5 as well as the C-4 and B-4 on the west side of the Canning River) are addressed as a collective work. The layers listed below are present as ArcGIS shapefiles. Attribute information for the following layers is included in this metadata file under the "Entity _and_Attribute_Information" section. Each layer is listed and described in detail under its own heading starting "Entity_Type_Label." Layers include:
 >contours: topographic contours
 >hydro_lines: hydrology lines
 >hydro_polygons: hydrology polygons
 >sec_grid_clip: section grid clipped to the shape of the map area
 >kavik_outline: outline of the Kavik River map area
 >pt_elevations: elevation points
