ArcView Project File
The ArcView project file has been customized to add a Metadata button to the View GUI. This button is only functional in the Windows 95/98/NT environment. Metadata files are available for all spatial data contained on this CD-ROM and are available on the data listing pages. The button provides a quick link to the Metadata for the active layers within ArcView. Selecting the button will display the Metadata in the computer system's default web browser.
Though the focus of this CD-ROM is to provide
a means to view the data using ESRI's ArcView program, the data may be
viewed and manipulated using other GIS software. The user may wish to utilize
one of these Environmental Systems Research Institute's (ESRI) software
For more information regarding the ESRI Arc/Info and ArcView programs and other available software, visit the ESRI home page at www.esri.com.
If you are using a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software package other than the ESRI programs, most commercially available packages are capable of importing ArcView shapefiles. To familiarize yourself with the data layer, browse graphics thumbnails of the data layers are available for viewing. The browse graphics are stored as GIF images and should display in all WWW browsers. Links to these images are available from the individual metadata files for the each data layer. The metadata files are also accessible from the Data Page.
