Geographic Feature

A Geographic Feature resource is a set of point, line, or polygon features stored in ESRI Shapefile format. The Shapefile format is comprised of multiple files including files with .shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj extensions. The minmum required files are the following,  .shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj but can also include, .sbx, .sbn, .cpg, .xml, .fbn, .fbx, .ain, .aih, .atx, .ixs, and .mxs files. Each of these files stores a different type of data such as the vectors, projection information, attribute data, and metadata.
