Abstract: This is is a point dataset for the locations and attributes of 20 Louisiana airports. The attributes include name, address, city, county (sic), state, phone, elevation (unknown units and reference datum), latitude (NAD27), and longitude (NAD27).
Purpose: This data set in geographic coordinates, NAD83 is an interim dataset for the Louisiana Oil Spill Coordinator's Office to be used only until a better one is obtained. It might also be used a starting point for an agency that has an interest in improving the data set. The source data were part of a group of data sets collected from state agencies by FEMA over the years for use in emergency response. The group of data was at some point given to the Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness. The data have not been updated since the original data collection.
Supplemental Information: The original source data set, a shape file in geographic coordinates NAD27 was converted to a coverage and projected to geographic coordinates NAD83 by 3001, Inc. to produce this data set. These metadata describe the coverage airports_FEMA_1997 in NAD83 datum and the shapefile of the same name derived from it.
