Service Description: The USGS Governmental Unit Boundaries service from The National Map represents major civil areas for the Nation, including States or Territories, counties (or equivalents), Federal and Native American areas, congressional districts, minor civil divisions, incorporated places (such as cities and towns), and unincorporated places. Boundaries data are useful for understanding the extent of jurisdictional or administrative areas for a wide range of applications, including mapping or managing resources, and responding to natural disasters. Boundaries data also include extents of forest, grassland, park, wilderness, wildlife, and other reserve areas useful for recreational activities, such as hiking and backpacking. Governmental Unit Boundaries data have been acquired from a variety of government sources. The data represents the source data with minimal editing or review by USGS to assure proper data integration or adherence to legal descriptions. Please refer to the feature-level metadata for information on the data source. For additional information, go to http://nationalmap.gov/boundaries.html
