This archive includes original CAD (.dgn) files as well as ESRI shapefiles (.shp). The original CAD files each cover approximately 1 square mile and are named based on the township, range, and section system. The shapefiles are available in larger area compilations based on townships. There are two sets of CAD files included in this archive. The "dgn" folder contains files which represent topographic contour lines. The "dtm" folder contains the point data and breaklines used to generate the contours.
