DATABASE STRUCTURE - ARC/INFO ====================================
The database of the map consists of coverages, including corresponding INFO files:
friscopoly2 coverage:  Contains all contact lines and labelpoints for each polygon. In the coverage's friscopoly2.aat INFO file the CODE item provides a numeric code that specifies the geologic identity and positional quality of each contact line (e.g., fault, approximately located), and the P1 and P2 items are relic cartographic parameters from the GSMCAD compilation program. The friscopoly2.aat CODE values are defined below. In the friscopoly2.pat INFO file the CODE and P2 items are relic cartographic parameters from the GSMCAD program, the P1 item provides a numeric code that specifies the polygon's map unit identity, the TEXT item indicates the map unit label for each polygon, and the SYMBOL item defines the polygon color as chosen from the color524.shd shadeset (included in bundled file archive). The friscopoly2.pat P1 and TEXT items are listed below.
friscoline2 coverage:  Contains faults, fold axes, and other non-contact lines.  Faults that are contacts also appear in the friscopoly2 coverage. In the friscoline2.aat INFO file the CODE item provides a numeric code that specifies the geologic identity and positional quality for each type of line, the P1 and P2 items are relic cartographic parameters from the GSMCAD program, and the TEXT item describes the geologic identity, positional quality, and, in some cases, additional aspects of each line. The friscoline2.aat CODE and TEXT items are listed below.
friscopoint2 coverage: Contains points used for cartographically decorating lines, such as "ball-and-bar" fault symbols, and teeth on thrust faults.   In the INFO file friscopoint2.pat the CODE item defines a numeric code for each type of point decoration and the P1 and P2 items indicate the orientation (or strike azimuth) and, where appropriate, dip (or plunge) value associated with each point symbol. The friscopoint2.pat CODE items are listed below.
Auxiliary files:
color524.shd:  This shadeset file defines the rgb values of colors assigned to polygons in the friscopoly2 coverage (see SYMBOL item).
