Data Structure and Attribute Information
Summary of the information content of the data, including other references to complete descriptions of entity types, attributes, and attribute values for the data.
Entity and attribute overview:
The format of the quad code is translated from the format typically provided by USGS. Translation is required for use in many database programs (e.g. Informix, Oracle) because often, when dealing with a character field, the database program will not accept a numeral in the first space.
Attributes of 30x60-minute Quad Polygons
Detailed descriptions of entity type, attributes, and attribute values for the data.
Polygons at intervals of 30x60 minutes of latitude and longitude
The USGS Ohio code for the 100K (.5 degree X  1 degree) quad.
Attribute values: 100K Ohio code for the quad; for example, E145120 (in which the 45 is the latitude, 120 the longitude of the southeast corner of a one degree by one degree block; 'E' refers to the fifth 7.5' row and '1' refers to the first column in a 1 degree x 1 degree quad, as measured from the southeast corner). All 100K Ohio codes begin with either 'A1' or 'E1', as this is derived from the 7.5-minute quad located in the southeast corner of the 100K quad.
Attribute definition source:
Internal feature number.
Attribute values: Sequential unique whole numbers that are automatically generated.
Attribute definition source:
Quadrangle name
Feature geometry.
Attribute values: Coordinates defining the features.
Attribute definition source:
Length of feature in internal units.
Attribute values: Positive real numbers that are automatically generated.
Attribute definition source:
Area of feature in internal units squared.
Attribute values: Positive real numbers that are automatically generated.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
Instructions: On the top of the page, click on the title of the dataset to toggle opening and closing of all metadata content sections or click section links listed horizontally below the title to open individual sections. Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
