Title: BIOFILE
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2019-09
Abstract:

The data table BIOFILE contains biological attribute data and key fields for linking to the vector objects in the biological data layers and to the associated data tables, BREED_DT and SOURCES. See the Entity_and_Attribute_Overview for a detailed description of how the primary attribute tables relate to the geographic data layers. Also see the Browse_Graphic section for a link to the entity-relationship diagram, which describes the way this table relates to other attribute tables in the ESI data structure. | Description Source: NOAA ESI Guidelines
