Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Districts - Congressional" (2002)
Description: The NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis acquired the voting districts shapefiles for the state of North Carolina from the General Assembly/Information Systems Division. These data represent the boundaries of 2001 Congressional districts in North Carolina (zero deviation). Block assignments were based on the plan ratified by the General Assembly in 2001 and effective for the 2002 elections. Each district is labeled with unique district identification number. The shapefiles were processed into ARC/INFO coverages and projected from Decimal Degrees to Stateplane NAD83 meters projection. These data were created to display the boundaries of voting districts, and to enable users to display voting districts with other geographic features.
