The digital data on this CD-ROM can be viewed in three different formats:
ESRI ArcView (.shp) files (These files are the separate coverages, compressed, and ranging from 6 KB to 5.7 MB)
The ESRI ArcView shapefiles are the coverages of political boundaries, counties, provinces, cities, urban areas, airfields, roads, railroads, electrical power network, river networks, ecoregions, population density, dental fluorosis prevalence rates, elevated flouride sources, ore deposits, oil and gas fields, coal-bearing age units, coal fields, coal mine production and rank, and geology (scale 1:10,000,000).
The ESRI ArcView shapefiles are available alternately as one compressed volume [38 MB]. Right-click (PC) or click and hold (Macintosh) to download.
The ArcView project (631 KB) is viewable if you have ArcView 3.1 or later installed on the computer on which the data are to be viewed. Right-click (PC) or click and hold (Macintosh) to download. The ArcView project file has the .shapefiles incorporated into two views: (1) Geology and Natural Resources and (2) Human Health and Environment.
ArcExplorer is available for free for users who do not have access to ArcView. ArcExplorer can be used to view the ArcView shapefiles included in this report.
Winzip for Windows can decompress the files, and StuffIt Expander for Macintosh can decompress the files.
