Synopsis

This is a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) format. SDTS has a raster and a vector format. The raster format isn’t supported in MapServer; only the vector formats are supported, including VTP and DLG files.

File listing

SDTS files are often organized into state-sized pieces; for example, all pf the state of Maryland, U.S.A.

Files are also available for multiple types of features including hydrography, transportation, and administrative boundaries.

This example uses transportation data, which consists of 35 separate files, each with the suffix DDF.
