Using HCAD's Public Data
HCAD's data files are available to users for import into other applications.
Some of the ASCII tab-delimited text files are complex and most of the files
are very large. Download times can be excessive and should not be attempted
with a slower internet connection. A file compression utility (WinZip
PKZip) is needed to extract the files.
Documentation and Instructions
The data is provided in ASCII tab-delimited text files and will need to be formatted for use in a database. We have provided empty
Microsoft Access tables along
with instructions on how to import the data. HCAD
does not provide technical support for the usage of this data or with Microsoft Access.
