This version represents a new database design created to enforce data integrity, expedite discovery and extraction of records, and facilitate the support of existing and new derivative data products. Tabels and fields are designed to be easily imported into alternative relational database management systems such as ArcGIS, PostGreSQL, SQL Server, and others. Furthermore, the data download bundle includes an MXD map file compatible with ArcMap 10.1, an ArcGIS Pro workspace, MDB and GDB databases, symbology files for ArcMap and ArcPro, a KMZ for use on offline devices, centralized metadata, and a stand-alone FGDC compliant metatada XML file.
An Access front-end compatible with all versions of MS Office 2000 to present is included in the MDB. A newly developed Search Wizard can be used through Access to query any and all Mines data with no prior knowledge of SQL or relational databases by the user.
