Process step:
Process description:
This dataset was derived in part from the GeoPlan data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). TLCGIS selected railroads from Leon County and surrounding counties and we also deleted numerous fields. We left the fields FID, Shape, CNTYFIPS, STCNTYFIPS, RROWNER1, and TRKRGHTS1. TLCGIS digitized some lines, based on recent aerial imagery.
