  6. How does the data set represent geographic features?

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

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

      • Entity point (93)
      • G-polygon (358939)
      • G-polygon (47)
      • G-polygon (50986)
      • G-polygon (50841)
      • G-polygon (132650)

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

      The map projection used is Lambert Conformal Conic.

      Projection parameters:
      Standard_Parallel: 43.069516
      Longitude_of_Central_Meridian: -89.422222

      False_Easting: 811000.000000
      False_Northing: 480943.886000

      Planar coordinates are encoded using coordinate pair
      Abscissae (x-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000031
      Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000031
      Planar coordinates are specified in survey feet

      The horizontal datum used is D_North_American_1983_HARN.
      The ellipsoid used is Geodetic Reference System 80.
      The semi-major axis of the ellipsoid used is 6378137.000000.
      The flattening of the ellipsoid used is 1/298.257222.
