Description:
Abstract: Index of USGS Quadrangles and Quarter-Quadrangles in and around Tompkins County.
Purpose: Provides a quick reference for identifying the location of USGS quadrangles and quarter-quadrangles in relation to other data sets.
Supplemental_Information: The Quarter-Quadrangle boundaries can be shown with either the polygon or the arc layer (useful for using dashed linetypes in ArcView). The Quadrangle boundaries must be shown using the Region.Quadrangle.

Lineage:
Source_Information:
Source_Citation_Abbreviation: USGS Topographic Quadrangle Maps and NYSDOT's USGS Quadrangle Index data set
Source_Contribution: USGS Topo Maps - Coordinates for the corners of the quadrangle and the interval between them (7.5 for full quads, 3.25 for quarter-quads). NYSDOT's USGS Quadrangle Index - QUADNAME and MRC fields in polygon and region.quadrangle layers.
Process_Step:
Process_Description: The data set was created using the GENERATE command in Arc/Info, with the FISHNET option. The origin coordinate was set to -76.75,42.25; the Y-axis coordinate was set to -76.75,42.75; the cell size was set to 0.0625 (which is equivalent to 0 3" 30'); and the opposite corner was set to -76.125,42.75. The QUADNAME and MRC items were then added and populated, based on NYSDOT's USGS Quadrangle Index data set. The QUADRANT field was added and populated, to designate the quarter-quadrant. The Quadrangle region was then created using the REGIONDISSOLVE command on the QUADNAME field. The coverage was then projected to NY State Plane Central Zone, Feet, NAD83.
