Data Source History: Gregg Obuch, OCIS telecommunications director, located each aerial using the digital orthophoto while Jonathan Lowe, Local Knowledge Consulting, digitized the points in ArcView as a point shapefile. The shapefile was then converted into an Arc/Info coverage using the shapearc command.

Quality Check: Hard copy prints of the aerials and their transmission paths with the orthophoto as a backdrop were given to telecommunications personnel. Using these prints, Greg Obuch confirmed that the sites were correctly located.
