Abstract:The Census Bureau is committed to using the Spatial Data Transfer Standard (SDTS) and is developing an extract from the Census TIGER™ called the TIGER/SDTS™. A single file of the prototype TIGER/SDTS is now available with which interested data users may experiment. This paper will graphically describe some of the SDTS concepts and census geographic concepts used in the TIGER/SDTS. The Census TIGER™ and the TIGER/SDTS™ are trademarks of the Bureau of the Census.

- Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is the official publication of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. CaGIS supports research, education, and practices that improve the understanding, creation, analysis, and use of maps and geographic information. The society serves as a forum for the exchange of original concepts, techniques, approaches, and experiences by those who design, implement, and use geospatial technologies through the publication of authoritative articles and international papers. The role of the CaGIS journal is to facilitate these objectives by disseminating results and reports in these areas of interest.
Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is now being published by Taylor & Francis as of 2013. Please visit the Journal's website at www.tandfonline.com/tcag or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe and obtain online access.
