These data files contain the location (latitude/longitude) of all street intersections found within a county. The files depict the English names of both streets intersecting, as well as, the location and unique "node" number (for streets which frequently intersect each other).
The files can provide a "nearest location" (i.e. a mortgage deed), or can be imported into a desktop GIS measure and copied to any geographic layer (i.e. census tract). A relative measure of "street density" can then be calculated based on the number of street intersections per land area or unit.
The files represent counties within a state.
