The TIGER Linework layer contains characteristics relating to roads networks, some water features (rivers and streams, canals, etc.), political boundaries, and other features. The road features contain address ranges that may be used in geocoding (address matching) applications. An ArcGIS Address Locator may be created using the US Streets with Zone type, with the ZIP Code fields being used for the zones.
The CFCC (Census Feature Class Code) field may be used to determine the feature type.
