Description:
Abstract:
The QUADS15 coverage contains neatlines for the USGS 15-minute quadrangle series. It was digitally generated to provide a reference template for mapping, digitizing, and archiving other GRANIT data layers.
Purpose: The data are useful as a general reference grid.

Entity_and_Attribute_Information:

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Attributes include: AREA - area of polygon (in sq. ft), software generated PERIMETER - perimeter of polygon (in ft.), software generated QUADS15# - internal feature number, software generated QUADS15-ID - feature identification number, user assigned ID - unique GRANIT ID. Assigned sequentially from the northwest corner of the state, proceeding easterly and then southerly, to the southeast corner of the state. Range of values: 1-65 NAME - name based on official USGS name for each 15-minute quadrangle. Includes some "custom" GRANIT names for overedge areas. XMIN - minimum latitude YMIN - minimum longitude XMAX - maximum latitude YMAX - maximum longitude
