Abstract:
1:250,000 scale data. UTM Zone 18, NAD27. The state is tiled into five regions. Each region corresponds with the original map sheet. These datasets replace the older version in which the state was tiled into ten regions. The scale of these datasets is 1:250,000. Using this data at a larger scale will NOT provide greater accuracy. In fact, it is a misuse of the datasets.
Purpose: Created for SEMO by the NYS geological Survey.
Supplemental_Information:
UTM extended zone 18 within National Map Accuracy Standards. Digitized from NYS Geological Survey Map & Chart Series Number 40, available from the NYS Museum Publications Department <http://www.nysm.nysed.gov/> Scale:
