3.12.2 Shapefile
The IDV can display ESRI polygon shapefiles.
  1. Load a shapefile. We'll use a catalog of shapefiles derived from the Census Tiger database provided by ESRI.
  2. Add a background image with the Displays->Maps and Backgrounds->Add Background Image menu item.
  3. Note the shapefile display is hidden. Raise it with the Vertical Position slider.
  4. This shapefile has an attribute database shown in the Table tab.
  5. Let's just show Highway 119
