Summary

RHPC_Area was developed to provide a spatial representation of RHPC program areas and designations

Description

RHPC_Area contains Maine Office of Rural Health and Primary Care (RHPC) program areas and designations for the state of Maine at 1:24000 scale. The dataset contains Primary Care Analysis Areas (PCAA), Dental Care Analysis Areas (DCAA), and Mental Health Analysis Areas (MHAA). The POLYGONS have attributes designating Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) for the PCAA, DCAA, and MHAA. The POLYGONS also have attributes designating the Medically Underserved Areas and Medically Underserved Populations (mua_mup). The coverage was developed using METWP24 as a base and combining data provided by RHPC

Format information content MEGIS publishes all vector layers in the Maine GIS Internet Data Catalog in ESRI's shapefile format. A shapefile is a simple non-topological format that stores the geometry and attribute information for a set of geographic features as a set of vector (point, line, polygon) coordinates. Shapefiles draw quickly and directly in ArcView, ArcGIS and ArcExplorer. Shapefiles are a compatible data type for many other types of GIS software. Three files are fundamental to each shapefile: .shp stores the feature geometry (shape and location information); .shx stores the index of the feature geometry; .dbf a dBASE (TM) file stores the attribute information for the features. Other index files may be created to help speed analysis and query: these file formats are .sbn .sbx .ain .aix .fbn and .fbx. In addition you may find projection .prj and metadata .xml, files associated with shapefiles
