The DARMC data is disseminated and is intended for scholarly use. This file is provided "as is" and while every effort has been made to verify its accuracy, DARMC does not guarantee that it is free of defects. Some roads have been accurately geocorrected, but this dataset is not intended for high resolution spatial analysis.
