TIGER/Line Shapefile, 2016, nation, U.S., Primary Roads National Shapefile

Metadata Updated: January 13, 2021

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.

                             Primary roads are generally divided, limited-access highways within the interstate highway system or under State management, and are
                             distinguished by the presence of interchanges.  These highways are accessible by ramps and may include some toll highways.  The
                             MAF/TIGER Feature Classification Code (MTFCC) is S1100 for primary roads.

The TIGER/Line Shapefiles may not be suitable for high-precision measurement applications such as engineering problems, property transfers, or other uses that might require highly accurate measurements of the earth's surface. Coordinates in the TIGER/Line shapefiles have six implied decimal places, but the positional accuracy of these coordinates is not as great as the six decimal places suggest.
