Census Landmark Polygon Features, 1995 - Alaska

Description
This datalayer displays polygon landmark features for the state of Alaska. "Landmark" is the general name given to a cartographic (or locational) landmark, a land-use area, and a key geographic location (KGL). A cartographic landmark is identified for use by an enumerator while working in the field. A land-use area is identified in order to minimize enumeration efforts in uninhabited areas or areas where human access is restricted. A key geographic location is identified in order to more accurately geocode and enumerate a place of work or residence. Feature classes represented in this layer include bodies of water (bays, rivers, lakes, ponds, estuaries, sloughs, creeks, etc.), campgrounds, National, State or local parks, forests, and recreation or wilderness areas and airports.
