Nevada Places.

The source data were downloaded in late 1999 from the U.S. Geological Survey's Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), and nominally represent all named features on 1:24,000 (or largest available scale) U.S.G.S. topographic maps in Nevada. See the GNIS online metadata for further information on scope, origin, and production. Feature coordinates were used with ArcView® to create a corresponding shapefile. Attribute fields representing location data already available to us as separate GIS data sets (such as map quadrangles, counties, etc.), or representing other data that we had no need or ability to interpret or use, were removed for compactness. A single field (see CLASS below) was then added and populated to provide a higher level of classification for the feature types included, to facilitate representation on map legends and other data uses.

Nevada lakes, playas, and other water bodies.

Completeness: Features 98%+ present, about 80% checked, refined, and attributed. All features classified as "major" have been attributed as to name (if any) and type. All features south of about latitude 39°-40°N are finished. North of that, all feature boundaries have yet to be compared and potentially refined against current 1:100,000 DRG topographic maps, a few minor features may remain to be digitized, and most features classified as "minor" remain to be attributed as to name (if any) and type. As of March 2003, over 300 new minor features were added and completed, most from 1:24,000 source maps, to the western 1/3 of Nevada north of 37°N.

These polygons were created to represent our perceptions of floristically and physiographically cohesive regions of Nevada. Using Plant Geography of the Intermountain Region (by Noel H. Holmgren, 1972, pages 77-161 in Intermountain Flora, vol. 1, New York Botanical Garden, Bronx) as an initial guide, boundaries were digitized on-screen over the 1998 GAP Land Cover 30-m grid data at between 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 display scale. Each region was visualized to encompass a similar overall mosaic of vegetational, floristic, geologic, topographic, and climatic features, using the GAP data as a tool, but also employing other data including personal knowledge of various portions of the state.

Nevada sand dunes.

Very incomplete, compilation in progress. Most relevant features south of latitude 39°-40°N have been captured, and attributes populated when known. North of that, only features visible on the 1998 GAP Land Cover 30-m grid data have been captured in rough form, and review, capture, refinement, and attribution of mapped features remains to be done.

When complete, these data will include all sand dune features depicted on current 1:100,000 topographic maps, plus some major features depicted only on 1:24,000 topographic maps. Compilation began by on-screen capture of sand dune areas depicted in the 1998 Nevada GAP Land Cover 30-m grid data. The 1:100,000 DRG topographic maps covering Nevada were then reviewed on-screen in series from south to north and from east to west. Boundaries of GAP-indicated features were refined, and all other mapped dune features were digitized on-screen and attributed. In some cases, major known dune features were captured and/or further refined using 1:24,000 DRG topographic maps.

The TIGER/Line Files are shapefiles and related database files (.dbf) that are an extract of selected geographic and cartographic information from the U.S. Census Bureau's Master Address File / Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) Database (MTDB). The MTDB represents a seamless national file with no overlaps or gaps between parts, however, each TIGER/Line File is designed to stand alone as an independent data set, or they can be combined to cover the entire nation. The primary legal divisions of most States are termed counties. In Louisiana, these divisions are known as parishes. In Alaska, which has no counties, the equivalent entities are the organized boroughs, city and boroughs, and municipalities, and for the unorganized area, census areas. The latter are delineated cooperatively for statistical purposes by the State of Alaska and the Census Bureau. In four States (Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, and Virginia), there are one or more incorporated places that are independent of any county organization and thus constitute primary divisions of their States. These incorporated places are known as independent cities and are treated as equivalent entities for purposes of data presentation. The District of Columbia and Guam have no primary divisions, and each area is considered an equivalent entity for purposes of data presentation. The Census Bureau treats the following entities as equivalents of counties for purposes of data presentation: Municipios in Puerto Rico, Districts and Islands in American Samoa, Municipalities in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The entire area of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas is covered by counties or equivalent entities. The 2010 Census boundaries for counties and equivalent entities are as of January 1, 2010, primarily as reported through the Census Bureau's Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS).
