Spatial Extent: United States, Canada
Source Scale: Stations having valid street addresses were geocoded to 1995 TIGER/Line (TM) street and railroad centerline files. Positional accuracy for those points is consistent with the accuracy of 1995 TIGER/Line(TM) files, or within about 50 meters of their true position. Stations with ambiguous or incomplete street addresses (and stations located in Canada) were positioned using a combination of street name, nearest railroad centerline, and place name. Positional accuracy for these points may vary from 100 to 1000 meters of their true location. The PA attribute indicates the estimated 'goodness' of the location.
