Description

This is a "best of breed" railroad centerline dataset, created using attributes from multiple sources and recent quality imagery. Detail was added to railroad yards and sidings and railroad intersections were refined. Updated 9/26/16 to reflect track near Lignite in Burke County changing from DMVW to BNSF and the track from near Lignite to Flaxton changing from DMVW to CPR. These changes occurred in June of 2016.


Summary

Developed for North Dakota as a complete and up to date railroad centerline dataset combining exisiting attributes from NDDOT, TIGER and NTAD data alligned with 2014 NAIP imagery.
