Content Description

Content Summary: The Skagit County Street Centerlines dataset consists of digital data describing county, state, private, and incorporated street centerlines for all of Skagit County. This dataset also contains the road numbers for all unincorporated roads lying within the county. These road numbers are assigned and maintained by the Skagit County Public Works Department in the County Road Information System (CRIS) road log. All incorporated roads are given a road number assigned and maintained by the Skagit County GIS Department. All unincorporated roads that carry county-assigned addresses are maintained via the Skagit County Address database. This data set includes those roads lying generally within Townships 33N through 36N, and Ranges 1E through16E, Willamette Meridian. Please note that the E00 file is the complete data set and includes all road features, whereas, the SHP file format is only capable of containing a single feature class. Therefore, if you want the SHP file format you may want to download both SHP files to get the complete data set.

Content Purpose: The Skagit County Street Centerlines dataset was created to provide support in street display, query, and mapping applications within Skagit County government.
