A Digital Line Graph (DLG) is a cartographic map feature represented in digital vector form that is distributed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). DLGs are collected from USGS maps and are distributed in large- intermediate- and small-scale with up to nine different categories of features, depending on the scale.

This data set consists of federally owned or administered lands and Indian Reservations of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.

Virgin Islands. The data set was created by extracting federal and Indian land polygon features from the individual ,scale State boundary Digital Line Graph (DLG) files produced by the U.S.

Geological Survey. The data sets stored in the public-domain Digital Line Graph Version 3 (DLG-3) Optional format have the file extension ".DLG". The DLG-3 format, which was designed for data interchange, stores spatial data organized in a polygon or line data structure.

The topological linkages are explicitly encoded for node, area, and line elements. This data set consists of federally owned land polygon features of the United States.

The data set was created by extracting federal land polygon features from the individual ,scale State boundary Digital Line Graph (DLG) files produced by the U.S. Geological Survey. These files were then appended into a single coverage. This is a revised version of the June data set.

The results of this digital approach to census mapping are threefold: (1) it will improve the efficiency and quality of the Census information, (2) the USGS/NMD was able to apply considerable resources in a short period to the creation ofdigital line graphs (DLGs) that are now part of the NDCDB, and (3) there is for the first.Scale Digital Line Graphs, U.S.

Currently o segments (links) and o nodes exist in the database. This Geographic Information Center's Digital resource utilizes the ,scale Digital Line Graph database produced by the U.S. Geological Survey to provide visualization of selected data layers (features) at state, multi-state, or national-level.

To understand digital maps and mapping, it is necessary to put them into the context of computing and information technology. First, this chapter provides an introduction to the building blocks of digital maps and geographic information systems (GISs), with particular emphasis placed upon how data and information are stored as files on a by: 3.One set of maps covers the United States in 21 sections atscale; another details the 25 largest urban areas atscale.

Two examples of available digital data are as follows: • Digital Line Graphs (DLGs) are digital files consisting of planimetric or linear information about one class of map information, such as. of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam: a hazard and environmental impacts assessment, Geomatics, Natural Hazards and Risk, DOI: /
