Group: Summary

   The map consists of ESRI Shapefiles of landscape polygons (in landscape unit 
   types) for the Russian Arctic coastal zone (scale 1:4,000,000). The map is 
   based on a digital circumpolar Lambert projection map. Polygons have a single 
   attribute (LAND-ID). LAND-ID is an eight-character code that describes the 
   landscape unit. The first two digits code zone, the third and fourth code 
   landscape, the fifth through seventh code lithology, and the eighth codes 
   substrate chemistry. The code is described in detail in an accompanying 
   legend. Large polygons enclosing islands, or continental land areas between 
   major rivers, form the boundaries of many smaller landscape polygons. These 
   large enclosing polygons have LAND-ID values of 0. Some smaller islands (e.g., 
   Zemlya Frantsa) have no codes associated with them. Areas on the far eastern 
   portion of the map also have no code.
