Short Name:

Large-scale digital line graph data from the U.S. Geological Survey

Digital line graph (DLG) data are digital representations of cartographic information. DLGs of map features are converted to digital form from maps and related sources. Large-scale DLG data are derived from USGS 1:20,000-, 1: 24,000-, and 1: 25,000-scale 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle maps and are available in nine categories: (1) hypsography, (2) hydrography, (3)vegetative surface cover, (4) non-vegetative features, (5) boundaries, (6)survey control and markers, (7) transportation, (8) manmade features, and (9)Public Land Survey System. All DLG data distributed by the USGS are DLG - Level 3 (DLG-3), which means the data contain a full range of attribute codes, have full topological structuring, and have passed certain quality-control checks.
