Project File Operation:

 

The ArcView project, DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman).apr, can be opened directly from the CD-ROM by double-clicking the project file in the /DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman)/projects folder, or it can be opened from your local hard-drive by first copying the /DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman) directory, with all subdirectories, to a root directory on the local hard drive and then double-clicking the project file there. If the /DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman) directory is copied into a subdirectory, rather than into the root directory, the project file will not open correctly without first modifying it. Such modifications should only be attempted by advanced ArcView users who understand the ramifications of altering the project file.

The fonts located in the /DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman)/support/fonts folder must be copied into the C:\(system)\Fonts directory of the local hard drive. Without these fonts, the default project palette (azgsgeopalette.avp, in the /DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman)/support/palettes folder) will not display symbols correctly.

Data Organization:

 

The organization of the data in this product, including the design of the database, the procedures used to create the data set, and the feature codes used to attribute the data, are explained in the Data Structure document (datastructure(DI-19).pdf). The data lookup tables are in the accompanying Microsoft Access database (RoskrugeWaterman.mdb). Complete FGDC-compliant metadata files are located in the /DI-19(RoskrugeWaterman)/metadata folder.
