Ncompass Technologies Landmarks

This is a compilation of a variety of geographic and reference point features in three datasets. It was built in conjunction with the NCompass Technologies street centerlines and is usually used in conjunction with that dataset. These features cover the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area and beyond (See Place Keywords for list of counties covered by this dataset) as well as three Wisconsin counties (Pierce, Polk, and St. Croix). The three files that make up the landmark features include Geographic areas of interest (NCompassLandmarkAreas), linear features (NCompassLandmarkLines) and points of interest (NCompassLandmarkPoints). Typical features of the NCompassLandmarkAreas layer include parks, lakes, golf courses, cemeteries, airports, etc. As of the December 1, 1998 release, the NCompassLandmarkAreas layer also contains a municipality field and feature name annotation. Typical features of the NCompassLandmarkLines layer include railroads and creeks. Typical features of the NCompassLandmarkPoints layer include city halls, schools, hospitals, etc. An agreement has been entered into by the Metropolitan Council and NCompass (formerly The Lawrence Group-TLG) that provides access to the NCompass Street Centerline and Landmarks data, at no fee, to all State and Local Government agencies and Colleges and Universities in the State of Minnesota. The Metropolitan Council has funded the licensing of these data for use by these organizations to promote standardization and sharing of geographic information. Note: Landmark features from other counties may also be made available as they are completed.
