      This is a Vector data set. It contains the following vector data types (SDTS terminology):

      • GT-polygon composed of chains (0)

    2. What coordinate system is used to represent geographic features?

      The map projection used is NAD 1983 HARN StatePlane Washington North FIPS 4601 Feet.

      Projection parameters:
      Standard_Parallel: 47.5
      Standard_Parallel: 48.73333333333333
      Longitude_of_Central_Meridian: -120.8333333333333
