The field MCD was added to list the standard common names used in Maine GIS data sets. MIDAS numbers have been compared for accuracy to MDIFW/MEDEP MIDAS update 2003. MEDEP hydrography names can be related using the MIDAS number. Hydrography feature names in BOATLNCH are those assigned by MEDOCBPL Boating Facilities Division and do not necessarily correspond with either USGS GNIS names or MEDEP hydrography names.
