NEODAT Project Announcement no.1/94
U.S.A. counties have now been added to the NEODAT Geographic
Dictionary. The NEODAT Geographic Dicitionary is an authority file
containing international standards intended for use in fish collection
management systems in museums participating in the Inter-
Institutional Database of Fish Biodiversity in the Neotropics
(The NEODAT Project). Although primarily intended for use in
neotropical fish collections, these standards may be useful for
biodiversity projects dealing with the North American fauna and
The NEODAT Geographic Dictionary can be obtained from the
NEODAT FTP Server. Files GEODICT.DOC and GEODICT.TXT contain
an ASCII version of the NEODAT Geographic Hierarchy. File
GEODIC14.DAT contains geographic coordinates for each county.
The latter is in Btrieve format and can be used by FishMap MUSE Edition
version 1.8.3 or above.
