Overview of attributes

All coverages contain the standardized attributes for arcs and polygons assigned by ARC/INFO.  For arcs these attributes are:
COLUMN--ITEM_NAME----------WIDTH-----OUTPUT-----TYPE---#_DECIMALS
1-------FNODE#---------------4----------5---------B---------\
5-------TNODE#---------------4----------5---------B---------\
9-------LPOLY#---------------4----------5---------B---------\
13------RPOLY#---------------4----------5---------B---------\
17------LENGTH---------------8---------18---------F---------5
25------<cover>#-------------4----------5---------B---------\
29------<cover>-ID-----------4----------5---------B---------\
For polygons these attributes are:
COLUMN--ITEM_NAME----------WIDTH-----OUTPUT-----TYPE---#_DECIMALS
1-------AREA-----------------8---------18---------F---------5
9-------PERIMETER------------8---------18---------F---------5
17------<cover>#-------------4----------5---------B---------\
21------<cover>-ID-----------4----------5---------B---------\
The database consists of seven coverages (and one related scan; see Supplemental_Information) which contain the folowing data:
COVERAGE------------ENTITIES-----------DESCRIPTION
MOUNDSPG-GEO--------POLY/ARC-----------Geologic contacts and unit labels.
MOUNDSPG-FLT--------ARC----------------Geologic structures including faults, fold axes, and tension cracks.
MOUNDSPG-ATT--------POINT--------------Bedding attitudes.
MOUNDSPG-SYM--------ARC----------------Graphical representation of fault offset symbols (strike-slip arrows and bar-and-balls).
MOUNDSPG-GRV--------ARC----------------Graphical representation of gravity contours (includes contour values).
MOUNDSPG-DAT--------POINT/ARC----------U-series and thermoluminescence sample locations and graphical representation of symbols.
MOUNDSPG-TXT--------POINT/ARC----------Unit label points and leader lines.
