MapPlot Ncarg4_0 database table

This table lists the contents of the MapPlot Ncarg4_0 database. The last column contains the area names, accessible through the MapPlot class array resource mpAreaNames. These names are considered the primary key to the data. Their order in the database and index into the mpAreaNames array is given by the first column of the table, labelled "ELEMENT INDEX."

The second column contains an integer representation of the area type. You can retrieve an array of these values by getting the read-only array resource, mpAreaTypes.

The third column contains the fixed area group assigned to each area. This value is used to determine the "geophysical" fill coloring of each area. Since it is based only on whether an area is ocean, land, or inland water, it cannot be modified by the user. You can access these values by getting the array resource mpFixedAreaGroups.

The fourth column contains the dynamic area group assigned to each area. This group is used to determine the "political" fill coloring assigned to each area in the database. By default, it is set up such that distinct adjoining political areas are guaranteed to be a different color, but the user can reset these values for other purposes, such as to represent statistical data. You can access these values through the array resource, mpDynamicAreaGroups.
