Process step:
Process description:
Rail lines and sidings originally mapped as part of the ADR 1996 Landbase Update Project and included in the Roadedge-of-Pavement "rdedge" Coverage. To create the, rail coverage, all arcs in "rdedge" attributed with Type 81 were selected and output to the rail coverage. Type 81 arcs included both the main rails and rail sidings. To differentiate these two features, the Field "SIDING" was added to railroad line coverage and main rails and sidings attributed.
Modifications to Data Layer
W. Rice, 09/28/98, Routes "ALL" and "MAINRAIL" created and added to the Railroad coverage.
Supplemental_Information:
Rail lines may have been added or deactivated since the creation date of this coverage.
