File nameswregapp
Spatial domainPima County
Abstract'Provisional' Southwest Regional Landcover from the USGS National Gap Analysis Program. Polygon coverage converted from swregap grid and dissolved on the various landcover types. The dissolve reduces the layer complexity while displaying the same information, enabling display on MapGuide that can't be done with the more complex grid.

This vector layer also enables MapGuide map tips to be displayed which are not possible with the SWReGAP image made from the grid. MapGuide displays SWReGAP from an image when zoomed further out. See more information.
