Digital Map Data

Prior to downloading digital map data, review the information below, including the sample test files and frequently asked questions. Selection of an export format that is compatible with the GIS software package it will run on is the responsibility of the user.

Projection File

Some GIS Software packages require that the GIS Layer have a predefined coordinate system.

Each .shp file includes an associated.prj file in the dataset. If you do not want the layer to be projected, simply delete the .prj file associated with the layer.

The projection file is also available by right clicking on the link below and saving it to a file:
