GIS Data for Vermont

The \gis\vt directory contains GIS data for the state of Vermont. An easy way to look at Vermont data is to open the \gis\vt\vt_base.mxd project file.

vgis_cd

Data from VCGIS received from Tony Tur at NEFO. Metadata is available by opening the welcome.htm file in the \gis\vt directory and then clicking on 'advanced users' then clicking on 'VGIS Data on this CD' then on 'LIST OF DATA LAYERS.'
Data is in Vermont State Plane (meters), NAD 83. Defined projection for all shapefiles in the vector directory as shown below. I calculated an acre and distance field for many of the shapefiles.
