Creating a new feature theme from an ASCII file

To avoid the need for ARC/INFO to import and use spatial data in INSROP GIS, we prepared an opportunity to create ArcView shapefiles directly from delimited ASCII files. For files with many features, the process may be somewhat time-consuming (several minutes). The following topics provide more specific information:
