Description
This dataset contains both line and polygon shape files for both 100 meter and 1000 meter US National Grid cells. The US National Grid is an FGDC map presentation standard (FGDC-STD-011-2001). These datasets were created to match the location reference system used by that standard. The reference system is based on NAD 83 UTM Coordinates and the Military Grid Reference System.
