    Description: 
      Abstract: 
      This is a public dataset for the Department of Transportation, Bureau of 
      Transportation Statistics. The public database consists of four tables. 
      One of the tables is a spatial table: INTERMODAL_FACILITY. The three other 
      tables consist of attribute data for the database: INTERMODAL_CARGO, 
      INTERMODAL_COMMODITY and INTERMODAL_DIRECTIONALITY. This database was 
      based on the requirements from the Commodity Flow Survey and with the 
      different modes of DOT, supervised by BTS. The database will extend its 
      design to support all of the modes within the DOT and in reference to 
      modes involved with Intermodal transfer. 
      Purpose: 
      This is a public dataset for the Department of Transportation, Bureau of 
      Transportation Statistics for internal use in GIS efforts. The data can be 
      utilized alone or in conjunction with various networks developed for the 
      data.

  Data_Quality_Information: 
    Logical_Consistency_Report: 
    A single coordinate pair for GIS reference represents all points. A unique 
    id number relates the records to other tables. A parent id is required, 
    which may be used to aggregate to its facility, which is the granularity of 
    the publicly released data. 
    Completeness_Report: 
    All records require geocoding, mode type, facility type, unique name 
    combination, and unique id to be included in the final dataset. 
    Positional_Accuracy: 
      Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy: 
        Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: 
        Geocode source holds the source of the spatial coordinates, particular 
        sources have varying spatial accuracy and is noted below. 
        Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment: 
          Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: GDT98Streets 
          Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation: 
          - The original digital source of line segment, such as a Census Bureau 
          1980 GBF/DIME File or a USGS 1:100,000 scale DLG-3. - Scale 1: 24,000 
          - For line segments that originated with the USGS DLG-3 files, the FCC 
          is based on the USGS classification code in the DLG-3 file. For line 
          segments that originated with the 1980 GBF / DIME Files, the FCC is 
          based on the NS code and other feature identification content of the 
          GBF/DIME -File. 
          - Latitude/longitude Data: except for DIME format (ASCII) boundary 
          files, all latitude and longitude coordinates are signed and have six 
          decimal places. Northern latitude is positive (0 degrees to 90 
          degrees), southern latitude is negative (0 degrees to -90 degrees). 
          West longitude are negative (0 degrees to -180 degrees), and longitude 
          are positive (0 degrees to 180 degrees) 
          - DIME format boundary file coordinates are expressed as all positive 
          values with six implied decimal places. Any longitude west of 180 
          degrees is expressed in increasing, rather than decreasing values. 
          ·Projection using latitude/longitude coordinate values with an implied 
          6 decimal places 
          ·All coordinates are based on the 1983 North American Datum (NAD83). 
          - As new streets are reported, they are added daily by digital map 
          technicians (DMTs) working in teams assigned to specific geographic 
          areas covering the entire nation. As DMTs work through their 
          particular regions, they concentrate on areas that contain the largest 
          numbers of missing addresses, usually newly developed areas. They 
          apply address ranges to unaddressed street segments, digitized new 
          streets, correct inaccurate segment shapes, and add exits and turn or 
          one-way restrictions. Each addition is verified with current maps and 
          other data. 
          - ARC/INFO format products are available in double precision. 
          Precision refers to the number of bits (single - 32bits, double - 64 
          bits) used to store coordinate data. Coverages in double precision are 
          slightly more accurate, but larger than those in single precision.

          Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: NTAD_Airports 
          Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation: 
          Airport attributes were obtained from the Federal Aviation 
          Administration's (FAA) National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical 
          Data and the Office of Airline Information (OAI) Enplanement Data. The 
          FAA Data was published by the Aeronautical Information Services 
          (ATA-100) with an Effective Date of 21 February 2002. Horizontal 
          positional accuracy is based on coordinate data provided in the FAA 
          National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Dataset (Effective 21 
          February 2002). These coordinate data identify the approximate 
          location of the Airport Reference Point (ARP) as reported by the 
          landing facility on the NFDC (National Flight Data Center) 5010 form. 
          According to NFDC guidelines, the location of the ARP should be 
          reported to a horizontal accuracy of one arc second of latitude and 
          longitude. However, the accuracy of these reported coordinates are not 
          verified by FAA. The records were loaded into a GIS and checked for 
          any unusual or obviously erroneous locations.

        Process_Description: 
        The use of this data for network or attribute related queries should 
        note that supplementary data is stored in a separate dbf files. These 
        tables hold pertinent information in a relational database format, ID 
        fields being linked as the primary keys and foreign keys. PU_FAC table's 
        primary key is ID and is the foreign key in PU_CAR, PU_COM, and PU_DIR, 
        identified by FAC_ID. The shape files match the corresponding dbf files, 
        no conversion is needed to utilize either format for analysis. Data is 
        based on various public and private published sources, i.e. IANA Railway 
        Guide, WWW, Army Corps of Engineers - Port Report. These sources are 
        frequently updated and revised, any particular inquires should be 
        directed to the data source of the record or records.
