in the metadata.

Coastal Program Boundary:
The data is clipped to the Coastal Program Boundary. These
files would be best if you are interested in information
that only affects the area within the Coastal Program
Boundary. The file sizes are small.
Lake Superior Basin:
This data is clipped to the Lake Superior Basin Boundary.
These files would be best if you are interested in information
that affects the entire area the drains into Lake Superior.
These files are the largest on the website.
This data is clipped to each individual county in Minnesota:
Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Lake, Pine, and St. Louis.
Use theses files if you are interested in information
that affects one individual county. Some of these files
are large, based on the size of the county.
