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---------\

>17------LENGTH---------------8---------18---------F---------5
>25------<cover>#-------------4----------5---------B---------\
>29------<cover>-ID-----------4----------5---------B---------\
For polygons these attributes are:
