Attribute:
Attribute_Label: SHAPE_Length
Attribute_Definition:
Length of feature in internal units.
Attribute_Definition_Source:
ESRI
Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain:
Positive real numbers that are automatically generated.

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain:
Positive real numbers that are automatically generated.
Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
The format of the quad code, attribute q15, 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.
