Question #2:
Hello, I have a couple questions about this. It is a databank of topographical maps of Catalonia (for all counties and municipalities). This is listing the different "layers" (of data) available for a set of maps.

TIA!!

As per the manual for how the Insitut Cartogràfic de Catalunya's "Base Topogràfica" was created: http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:j1yz75WfibEJ:84.88...

It looks like you're right--they're talking about shapes (lines and "polygons") used in the Arc/Info software package.

These are called "line features" and "polygon features" (alternately, "polygon features" are also called "area features"): http://www.gisdevelopment.net/tutorials/tuman002pf.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_information_system

This is visible on webpages of various cartographic websites with downloadable content sorted into "line features" and "polygon features":

Reference: power lines

Reference information:
Hi Ben,

I'm thinking this might refer to power lines. If you search for "infraestructures auxiliars" you often get hits like this:

"Polígon industrial format per la Central Nuclear Vandellòs I (en desmantellament), la Central Nuclear Vandellòs II (en funcionament), i la Central Tèrmica de la Plana del Vent (Hospitalet de l’Infant), així com per les seves infraestructures auxiliars (subestacions i línies de molt alta tensió), que juntament amb el pas de grans infraestructures de comunicació (autopista AP-7, autovia A-7) i les activitats extractives (pedrera de Racó del Marfull)."
From http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:dQ4DDJtdfk0J:www.c...

"Preveure criteris per la integració paisatgística i la regulació de la tipologia i l’estètica de:lesurbanitzacions aïllades, les zones industrials (les Tàpies, Central nuclear Vandellòs I i II, CentralTèrmica)les infraestructures auxiliars (subestacions, línies d’alta tensió..)les activitats en sòlno urbanitzable (càmpings, hivernacles, golf, etc..), i les activitats extractives existents i els espais perimetrals.

"Per altra banda, cal fer esment de les servituds i molèsties motivades per la pròpia construcció de l’obra durant tot el període constructiu. Les aigües brutes mentre es fa l’obra, la sobrefreqüentació de camins rurals, **la construcció d’infraestructures auxiliars (molt sovint línies elèctriques)**, la necessitat d’afectar camps limítrofs que després teòricament es restituiran, o el pas reiterat de maquinària i d’obrers, així com els accidents o els problemes específics derivats de les emissions o el pas de la maquinària (la pols als productes agraris, per exemple), tenen tots ells uns efectes greus en l’agricultura. I més si és el cas de l’agricultura periurbana, intensiva, en què les pèrdues pels efectes col·laterals de la construcció són molt més grans que en les explotacions extensives i mancades de capitalització."

In English you also frequently get hits like "Bird mortality caused by collisions with operating turbines and/or elements of auxiliary infrastructure, in particular overhead power lines; "

I haven't posted this as an answer since I'd like some other folks to weigh in on it, but this is my guess for what this question is referring to.
