Description

Quad24kIndex_Poly is a coverage which contains theoretically perfect quadrangle polygons encompassing the State of North Dakota. Attribution of the polygons includes 1:250000, 1:100000, 1:24000, and 1:24000 quarter quadrangle delineations.

Summary

This coverage can be used in a variety of ways. It could be used as an index coverage for DLG availability, as a digitizing control coverage, or maybe as a clipping extent for clipping USGS Digital Raster Graphics. If you want quarter quadrangle delineations, you need to look at the QuadIndex feature class as this includes the quarter quadrangle information as well as what you have here.

Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 2001-08-01
Description
A fishnet grid was created with intersections at every 3.75 minutes of degrees latitude and longitude. Polygons were created, items added and attributed with USGS row and column information along with 1 degree x 1 degree block numbers being assigned. Through the use of INFO, this information was concatonated into the USGS naming conventions for 1:250000, 1:100000, 1:24000, and 1:24000 quarter quads. Names for the quads were taken from USGS index sheets or from existing data tables that the NDSWC had on hand.
