Publication date: 20080625
Data type: vector digital data
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
A 1:24,000-scale polygon feature-based layer of Major Drainage Basins. The major basin datalayer extends beyond the Connecticut boundary to include the headwaters of every major basin that flows into the state, except for the Connecticut River basin. These data are for making a Major Basin-based Mapbook Series. Mapbook is a developer's sample created by ESRI. It is an addition for ArcMap that allows the layout created in an ArcMap document to be used repeatedly to generate a series of similar maps. The extent of each map is controlled by the polygon features of the datalayer designated as an index. Attributes of the index are tagged to and used to change text on each map in the series.
These data are suitable for making a Mapbook Series using Major Basin as a spatial index. Not intended for use in a conventional GIS mapping or spatial analysis application.
