GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Municipal Boundaries 2004" (2005)
Description: The North Carolina Department of Transportation-GIS Unit developed the digital GIS Municipal Boundaries - Powell Bill 2004 data set from the 2004 Powell Bill boundaries which incorporated municipalities in North Carolina are required to submit to NCDOT on a regular basis. Satellite Annexations for towns carry the same population figure that the main town polygon contains, and towns split by county lines have the same population figure in each polygon. Sources for the boundaries vary in scale and format based on whatever the municipality supplied. Incorporated municipalities are required to supply the NCDOT with their official municipal boundaries on a regular basis. This data were created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS). Municipal boundaries are recognized as a base cartographic layer for location analysis.
