Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Selected streams were digitized using Intergraph's IGDS software. The resulting design file was intermittently revised to reflect newly compiled data from 1:100,000 USGS sources. Major water features were extracted from the file to portray the state's coastlines and biggest rivers. The DGN file was converted to an Arc/Info coverage using Arc command "IGDSARC," and then transformed to geographic coordinates with Arc commands "PROJECTDEFINE" and "PROJECT."
