DescriptionThe Digital Chart of the World (DCW) is an Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) product originally developed for the US Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) using DMA data. This data was downloaded from the Penn State web site and then converted to Shapefile format using ArcMap. See the Penn State web site for more details and to download other data: http://www.maproom.psu.edu/dcw/dcw_about.shtml NOTE - this is a revised version of an earlier DCW dataset that was here as of 5th August 09. It has fixed some issues in the conversion process from E00 to Shapefile that lost some features. This dataset is in the original geographical coordinate system (Clarke 1866). A set of ArcMap Layer Files is included with the data that can be used to give an approximate representation of the data. http://www.maproom.psu.edu/cgi-bin/dcw/dcwarea.cgi?Europ. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2010-06-09 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-22.
