#### 9.12DAT-files

DAT-files can be used to associate information to GEN-files (see section section 9.11.1). The DAT-file should have the same name as the GEN-file. The ID${}_{i}$ number(s) for the polygons is used to relate to the proper ID in the DAT-file. The syntax of a DAT-file is simple.

Example of a DAT-file:

Note: It is possible, however, to relate more polygons with identical ID numbers, to the same ID in the DAT-file.

Note: The different data for each field should be delimited by a single (or more) space(s), or a comma. Do not use tabs as delimiters! Entries that contain spaces should be encapsulated by quotes, e.g. Het Rif should be entered as ‘Het Rif’.
