Data sets--GIS Data for Creating Maps

The links below contain GIS data from the KGS Automated Cartography unit. The boundary files contain longitude-latitude pairs to create Kansas cocunty lines, a state boundary, and the GMD boundaries. Each polygon is terminated by a " -1.000000 -1.000000" pair. The entire file is termianted by another " -1.000000 -1.000000" pair. There is no count of the number of points in each polygon before the polygon starts.

You will probably have to hand edit these files to make them compatible with your mapping software. These are text files, and are not created for any particular mapping package.

Hold your right mouse button down when you click on the link and select "Save Link to Disk" from the pop-up menu that appears. Otherwise the data file will be displayed as a normal web page. On Macintosh computers, hold your mouse button down and a pop-up menu should appear. You can also copy the files directly from the CD-ROM by looking at the /Data/GIS directory.
