The main goal of the project is to show differences between street files from different sources. The TIGER street file from Census Bureau is contrasted with a street file from MN DOT and DNR. Metadata about origin (1:100,000 vs. 1:24,000 topographic maps) helps students think about horizontal accuracy. Use of USGS "county" DOQs is a secondary goal.
