Description:
Abstract:
Planimetric Coverage containing the delineation of topographic contours at ten foot intervals.  Annotation of Contour Line elevations exists.  Annotation viewable at 1" = 200'.  The city-wide contour download file is approximately 250 megabytes.
Supplemental_Information:
These data are available in the native ArcINFO Coverage or converted by PASDA staff to Shape-File format.  The ArcINFO Coverages should be unzipped using the 'Retain directory structure" option in your unzip utility.  This will create a directory with the same name as the archive file.  The coverage directories and files will decompress in that directory
