Description:
Abstract: Libraries data contains name and location data for selected manmade facilities. These data are designed to be used in general mapping and analysis of structure related activities using a geographic information system (GIS) For mapping purposes, structures can be used with other GIS data themes to produce general reference maps as a base map dataset
Purpose: Libraries data were updated for Maine as part of a data stewardship agreement with the USGS to provide infrastructure data for the National Structures Dataset. These data are intended for use in general mapping alone or with other data themes to produce general reference maps. Maps may serve as base maps for special purpose mapping

Format Name: ESRI Shapefile
Format Version Number: ARC Version 9.x
Format Specification: ArcView Shapefile Format
Format Information Content: MEGIS publishes all vector layers in the Maine GIS Internet Data Catalog in ESRI's shapefile format. A shapefile is a simple non-topological format that stores the geometry and attribute information for a set of geographic features as a set of vector (point, line, polygon) coordinates. Shapefiles draw quickly and directly in ArcView, ArcGIS and ArcExplorer. Shapefiles are a compatible data type for many other types of GIS software. Three files are fundamental to each shapefile: .shp stores the feature geometry (shape and location information); .shx stores the index of the feature geometry; .dbf a dBASE (TM) file stores the attribute information for the features. Other index files may be created to help speed analysis and query: these file formats are .sbn .sbx .ain .aix .fbn and .fbx. In addition you may find projection .prj and metadata .xml, files associated with shapefiles.
