Track: National Mapping
Authors: Robert Pierce, Laura Waggoner
Boundaries are a critical data layer for our maps. Boundary data sets are collected by many agencies many times. The National Boundaries Group has been improving the national boundaries of the U.S. (state, county, international boundaries, Federal lands, tribal lands) The group is focused on importance of these national boundary data sets being integrated, consistent, and accurate as possible. Boundary improvement processes involve use of data such as roads, streams, parcels, other geographies.
