    RTK Net TRI data for your-state(s) in low level of detail.
    RTK Net TRI data for your-state(s) in high level of detail.

2. tri-general.zip

    NOT_MAPPED.xls - this is an Excel
    spreadsheet that contains the data records 
    that could not be mapped. Either the facility
    provided no longitude or latitude data at all
    or what was submitted was not in a form
    understandable to the GIS mapping program.

    fields.txt - this is a list of the EPA provided
    data field names and the names that we used when 
    converting the data files to GIS shapefiles.

A good resource for free map layers such as local streets, 
county boundaries, streams, census tracts and much more is:

Note: Be sure to print out the instructions on the download
page right before or after (or while) you download your files
as the url for this page may change.

We have a long list of shapefiles that we are creating. You can always
find the updated list of these at:
