TIGER/Line Shapefile, 2014, nation, U.S., Rails National Shapefile

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

The TIGER/Line shapefiles and related database files (.dbf) are an extract of selected geographic and cartographic information from the U.S. Census Bureau's Master Address File / Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) Database (MTDB). The MTDB represents a seamless national file with no overlaps or gaps between parts, however, each TIGER/Line shapefile is designed to stand alone as an independent data set, or they can be combined to cover the entire nation.

           The Rails Shapefile includes all features within the MTDB Super Class "Rail Features" distinguished where the MAF/TIGER Feature Classification Code (MTFCC) for the feature in the MTDB that begins
           with "R". This includes main lines such as spur lines, rail yards, mass transit rail lines such as carlines, streetcar track, and monorail or other mass transit rail and special purpose rail lines
           such as cog rail lines, incline rail lines and trams.
