Data Layer GraphicTitle: "County Boundaries - Polygon" (2006)
Description: The NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis developed the GIS data set, County Boundaries, as mapped by the US Geological Survey-Digital Line Graph Program to facilitate planning, siting and impact analysis in the 100 individual counties of North Carolina. This file enables the user to make various county-level determinations when used in conjunction with other data layers. This coverage does not include the shoreline but contains straight-lined boundaries of all of North Carolina's Counties. Another coverage exists which does include the shoreline. This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
