NOTE -- This shapefile is identical to a version named "INDIANA_COUNTYBDY_24K_IGS_P". This metadata file is a copy of the metadata for "INDIANA_COUNTYBDY_24K_IGS_P" that has had minor edits. The shapefile and metadata were renamed to conform to a file-naming convention for a project funded outside the IGS.
The Name_U field was populated with the county name in all capital letters as spelled on the USGS 7.5-minute quadrangles. The Name_L field was populated with the county names in mixed upper and lower case letters as defined by the IGS standard. The NCAPC field was populated with the numeric county alphabetical prefix codes defined on license plates as listed on the Indiana Bureau of Motors Vehicles web page. The resulting coverage was then opened in ESRI ArcView and saved as a shapefile named "INDIANA_COUNTYBDY_24K_IGS_P."
