5. Metadata (information
about the layer) is included for all layers available on this page and within
the layer download and viewable through ArcCatalog.
6. Data translation documents
are available for NCRoutes, NCRouteArcs and NCRouteCharacteristics for

field. These documents are similar to metadata but provide a more
user-friendly, printer friendly read that can be accessed without ArcGIS
software or downloading any of the feature layers.
