ArcGIS 9.3: DLG to shapefile conversion

The ArcGIS Toolbox provides a powerful set of conversion tools for converting raster files to coverages, importing USGS digital elevation models (DEM) to SDTS (spatial data transfer standard), etc. But if you do not have the ArcInfo license and still need to import a DLG (digital line graph), there are several third party tools to do it.

Check out the DLG2SHP utility (http://tnatlas.geog.utk.edu/downloadfree.htm) that converts DLGs to Shapefiles. This can be used instead of the "Coverage Tools/Conversion/To Coverage" toolkit. Quick and easy!
