Dataset Description (abstract)dc.description.abstractThe Vector Map (VMap) Level 0 database represents the fifth edition of the Digital Chart of the World. The third/fourth edition was published in 199701. The product is dual named to show its lineage to the original DCW, published in 1992, while positioning the revised product within a broader family of VMap products. VMap Level 0 (VMap0) is a comprehensive 1:1,000,000 scale vector basemap of the world. It consists of cartographic, attribute, and textual data stored on compact disc read only memory (CDROM). The primary source for the database is the National Imagery and Mapping Agency's (NIMA) Operational Navigation Chart (ONC) series. This is the largest scale unclassified map series in existence that provides consistent, continuous global coverage of essential basemap features. The database contains more than 1,900 megabytes of vector data and is organized into 10 thematic layers. The data include major road and rail networks, major hydrologic drainage systems, major utility networks (cross-country pipelines and communication lines), all major airports, elevation contours (metric equivalent of 1000 foot (ft), with 500ft and 250ft supplemental contours), coastlines, international and first order boundaries and populated places. This dataset contains data from the eurasia CD and covers north/western Europe incl. UK. Purpose: The VMap0 is a general purpose global database designed to support Geographic Information Systems applications. This dataset was downloaded as VMap Level 0 data from the NGA 'geoengine' website using the NGA Raster Roam tool (http://geoengine.nga.mil/geospatial/SW_TOOLS/NIMAMUSE/webinter/rast_roam.html). The VMap data was loaded into CadCorp MapModeller and exported as Shapefiles using CadCorp. The field names were edited in ArcMap to remove spaces. The specification of the data and other metadata are included in the Zip file in the Metadata folder. The data is in the WGS 84 coordinate system. GIS vector data. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2010-06-30 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-21.
