GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Railroads" (1998)
Description: The US Geological Survey-National Mapping Division created the 1:100,000-scale Railroads data from their published maps. The 1:24,000 scale railroads were derived from USGS's DLG (Digital Line Graph) Program The NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, combined these two data sources to develop the NC statewide Transportation-Railroads digital data as a base layer showing railroad features. 24 k data was use when duplicate tracks existed from both sources. This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
