Process_Step:
Process_Description:
This data set was created from several sources and finalized. Most features are based on a generalized version of the ArcWorld 1:3M coverage. The country and administrative unit boundaries were utilized for most of the zone boundaries. In a few instances, the ArcUSA 1:2M county level data for the United States and the ArcAtlas™ data for some zone boundaries in Russia were used. Most of the zones in ocean areas followed lines of longitude and latitude and were mathematically generated. The values of plus and minus hours from Greenwich are from a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) map and the Rand McNally New International Atlas.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following steps were performed by ESRI for Data & Maps 2002: Extracted the finalized data set. Updated areas in Canada including Nunavut. Densified arcs at 0.1 decimal degrees to maintain curvature of longitude lines when projecting. Generalized arcs at .02 decimal degrees. Created regions based on the Zone attribute. Output the data set as a shapefile. Created ArcView legend file (.avl), ArcGIS™ layer file (.lyr) file, projection file (.prj), and spatial indices.
