• LIBRARY HOLDINGS CATEGORIZED BY GEOGRAPHY •We chose not to invest in the usual "card catalog" database to communicate the location of the CDs and DVDs that contain our data. Instead, we just do our best to assign meaningful names and file the items alphabetically. The names we assign are based on either the topic of the data item (elevation, temperature, etc.) or its geography (Brown County, Wabikon Lake Forest, etc.). The choice of categorizing by topic versus geography is made on the basis of what seems to make the most sense. This page talks about the portion of the library that is categorized by geography.
Volume Names Based On Geography
Examples of data types cataloged by geography:
• Data obtained from county governments (parcel data, some roads, local land use, etc)
• Imagery mosaicked by county (some orthophotos and topo maps)
• Data relevent to a particular study site or area of interest (eg Niagara Escarpment)
