* March 16, 2013 - Please Note, not all substrate data downloads are unique. There are instances where the substrate data download button will provide a zipfile that's identical to a download offered at a different row or Reference #. This is not a mistake though it may cause confusion. The reason for this duplication is that some sources have been integrated into larger compilations or aggregate maps.
