ArcSDE layer names and descriptions of MassGIS data

The following is a list of the names and descriptions of the vector and raster layers, tables, and views in the GISDATA schema (unless otherwise indicated) in MassGIS' Oracle-based ArcSDE geodatabase.

The names are also used when distributed as shapefiles and dbf tables. The feature type is indicated by the abbreviation ARC (line features), POLY (polygon area features), or PT (point features). The abbreviation _S_V indicates a spatial view.
