Access the Spatial Data Organization Information Editor from the . Describe the methods you used to represent spatial information in the data set, and how the data is organized, including direct and indirect spatial references. The fields in the Spatial Data Organization Information Editor accept metadata about the number and type of objects in your data set, the terminology set you use to describe the data, and other information about the nature of the data.
Spatial Data Organization
Specify the methods you used to identify geographic locations, for example, formal methods (such as the Geographic Names Index system place names, Public Land Survey System locations, or Federal Information Processing System location codes); or less formal methods such as the name of a county, or a street address. These references do not include coordinates.
Specify the type of vector or non-gridded point objects used in the data set, and how many there are. If the direct spatial reference method is either Point or Vector, select whether you use SDTS terms or VPF terms.
Select the appropriate point or vector information that uses terminology and concepts from Spatial Data Concepts, Part 1, Chapter 2, in Department of Commerce, 1992, Spatial Data Transfer Standard (SDTS) (Federal Information Processing Standard 173): Washington, Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology. The reference to the SDTS is used only as a name for the method used to describe the point and vector objects. This method is selected by default in the dialog box.
Indicate how completely the topology is represented in the data set. This field becomes available if you select VPF terms. These levels are defined in the following publication: Department of Defense, 1992, Vector Product Format (MIL-STD-600006): Philadelphia, Department of Defense, Defense Printing Service Detachment Office. The reference to the VPF is used only as a name for the method used to describe the point and vector objects.
This describes the types of raster objects in the data set, and how many rows and columns they have for flat, rectangular objects; or the number of objects along the Z-axis (verticals) for three-dimensional, rectangular objects.
