Blue Marble Geographics releases 2002 TIGER/Line Map Kit complete with new versions of their TGR2SHP and TGR2MIF translators. TGR2SHP and TGR2MIF are Windows based applications for converting or batch processing TIGER 97, 98, 2000 and 2002 files to ArcView Shapefiles and MapInfo MIF files, respectively. You don’t even have to unzip the TIGER archives! Choose one of these translators with your purchase of our 2002 TIGER/Line Map Kit.
