Process description:
Coverage was originally mapped from Ortho photos, air photos and stand exams.  It was manuscripted on 1:24000 mylar PBS quads and scanned into LTPLUS.  It was edited using MOSS.  Then converted to ARC/INFO where it is currently maintained.  This cover was built at a map scale of 1:24000.
