Overview of attributes

This cdafldpl.met metadata has three geospatial datasets cdasurf4_utm,
fldpln2 and fpaream2. The associated ArcView files are:
cdasurf4_utm.shp/.shx/.dbf/.avl; fldpln2.shp/.shx/.sbx/.sbn/.dbf/.avl;
fpaream2.shp/.shx/.dbf/.avl; and an APR file (cdapbofp.apr), which is
required to load this project into ArcView. The AVLs are included to
format the shape file legends.
The shape-file, cdasurf4_utm.shp, was used to generate fldpln2.shp,
and both contain the same file structure.



Polygons and attributes for a map of geologic and wetland units and systems, which represent sedimentary depositional environments of the Coeur d'Alene (CdA) River valley. This map extends beyond the lateral and longitudinal boundaries of the area studied for this report. fldpln2.dbf contains the same attributes.
