1. Data Access

Data in this report are provided in a variety of formats. This section describes how to access the various data formats including Portable Document Format (PDF; *.pdf), Joint Photographic Experts Group format (JPEG; *.jpg), Microsoft® Excel file format (XLS; *.xls), Comma Separated Values (CSV; *.csv), ESRI® shapefile format (shapefile; *.shp, *.shx), and Binary ESRI® grid format (ESRI® grid; 'folder'). These data types are further stored and compressed within Zip files in order to facilitate Web downloads. WinZip® files of data layers are linked within the Data Preview section with specific download instructions.

If WinZip® is not currently installed on the local system, go to WinZip® <http://www.winzip.com> to download the latest version of the WinZip® utility.

  • PDF Data
    • Field logs and notes converted to electronic format (PDF) can be accessed using Adobe® Acrobat® or Adobe® Reader® (free version: http://get.adobe.com/reader/)
  • JPEG Data
  • Microsoft® Excel Spreadsheets and CSV files
    • Tabular data in both Excel and CSV format can be viewed using Microsoft® Excel. CSV data can also be viewed using any text editor such as Vim (free version: http://www.vim.org/)
  • Geospatial Data
    • The geospatial data in this report are delivered as ESRI® grids (raster) and shapefiles (vector). Rasters are stored as Binary ESRI® grid format in the data_catalog (including the data_catalog.zip file). Vector data are stored as shapefiles within the Zip file. To view the geospatial data, the user may access the data using: ArcGIS® 9.0 or higher, ArcView® 3.x, or ArcGIS Explorer 9.x (free version for vector data: http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer/index.html).
    • These data can also be viewed within an ArcView® 3.2 project (2009-1031.apr ) or an ArcMap™ 9.2 map document (2009-1031.mxd). To view the map documents: Copy the data_catalog folder or the data_catalog Zip file (120 MB; for www downloads) to a local computer and open the ArcView® project 2009-1031.apr or the ArcMap™ 9.2 map document 2009-1031.mxd. These map documents are saved with relative links. As long as the file structure remains the same under the parent directory (data_catalog) there is no need to change drive letters or pathways. Approximately 500 MB of free space is needed to save the data and extract it to a local drive.
