[IDV #XJI-825633]: tower and road datafiles for IDV, western NY

> Hi Yuan,

Now I understand what the tower data is. Thanks. Maybe you already know that 
there is a rotate function available in the IDV through the plugin to do the 
radial beam rotation. Let me know if you need help.

I don't think we have archived any data like these. The road data is easy to 
find, you can google it or go to esri site to do the search.
