Montana Roads from TIGER/Line Files, 2000

Data Provider U.S. Census Bureau Geography Division
Date 2000
Content Type Downloadable Data
Abstract These are all of the roads from the U.S. Census Bureau 2000 TIGER files. Most of the roads were digitized from 1:100,000 scale maps by the US Geological Survey. Roads added to the database after 1990 were digitized by the Census Bureau from various sources.Some roads that exactly follow county lines exist twice in the TIGER database -- once for each county that they appear in. One of each of these pairs has been removed from the version of this data set that is on the SDE server at the State Library and the statewide shapefile on the web site. The individual county shapefiles on the web site are also missing these duplicate roads, so most county shapefiles will not have all of the roads that fall exactly on their boundaries.
Purpose
Supplemental Information To find out more about TIGER/Line files and other Census TIGER database derived data sets visit http://www.census.gov/geo/www/tiger. The Census Bureau removed many roads from the 1992 TIGER files that do not appear in this data set. Roads were removed if the Census Bureau believes that they do not actually exist on the ground, or if there are no housing units along the road and the road was not needed as a point of reference for field operations of the Census.
