Accessing & Using TIGER/DMD Files
  -- Faces Shapefile Attributes

The Faces table (faces.dbf) contains the attributes of each face (side of edge). Each face has a unique TFID value. The face geometries can be built from the All Lines/Edges shapefile using the edge left and right face relationships. Each edge contains a TFIDL (left-side) and TFIDR (right-side) that can be used to link to the Faces TFID value.

The Faces table structure presented below shows 2012 vintage fields; 2013 vintage fields are similar but include OMB 2013 CBSA codes and 113th Congressional District codes. Fields with ** are not part of the TIGER structure and are unique to the DMD structure. The TIGER Editor can be used to derive the original TIGER data/records from this DMD version.
