  • For every CR, WASABY needs a complete shapefile of the geographic area covered by its activity. The shapefile format is a digital vector storage format for storing geometric location and associated attribute information. It consists of a collection of files with a common filename prefix (e.g., Varese.shp, Varese.dbf, Varese.shx), stored in the same directory, with mandatory and optional files
  • Files must be combined with information on calendar years of validity (in case of administrative changes of SU in the incidence years studied). Other optional files, regarding spatial features not reported in the .dbf file, can be added but are not needed for a correct representation. In the .dbf file an information about the minimum geo-coding level must be reported (i.e., census block, municipality, etc.)
