Process_Description:
Bernardin, Lochmueller & Associates received an ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 coverage named "hnf_own" from the Hoosier National Forest in May 2007. ArcGIS 9.2 was used to export the coverage into a shapefile format. The fields "hnf_own_" and "hnf_own_id" were deleted. The data in the field "owner" was replaced from code to text definition where code 620 = private and code 621 = USFS.
