Area_point_Y

Numeric

none

Northing value of state plane coordinate of corner within polygon. Datum and projection is defined in DEF file. Format: #######.###

Nominal_description_text

String

REPLACES NW 1/4 OF THE NW 1/4

Mer_Tier_Range

String

none

Survey_suffix

Char

none

An optional char, that when appended to Survey_number and associated with Mer_Tier_Range_Sec and Survey_type, uniquely identifies the parcel that the polygon defines or is within.

Nominal_code

Char

none

A code ranging from A to P that defines which of the sixteen parts of a section that the polygon defines or is within. An additional value Q pertains to all parts, in cases where section subdivision has not taken place. Additional characters R,S,T,U and V,W,X,Y are being considered as appendages to the nominal_code to allow definition of aliquot parcels subdivided down below the 1/16th (40 acre) parcel level.

Official_acreage

none

The official acreage of the parcel that the polygon defines or is within. Units: acres

Survey_note

Char

none
