Service Description:

Map Name: U.S. Forest Service Geopolitical Units


All Layers and Tables



Description: A map service on the www depicting geopolitical data for the entire area of the United States and territories. This includes States, Counties or Boroughs, Congressional Districts, Alaska Recording Districts, County Subdivisions, and Places boundaries that are derived from the latest official Census Bureau and Alaska Department of Natural Resources datasets. This offers the combination of the most recent Census Bureau and Alaska DNR geopolitical data with geopolitical boundaries within Forest Service lands that have been adjusted for better accuracy and for vertical integration with Forest Service data. Since it is vertically integrated when coincident with Forest Service lands, this dataset allows for better multi-layer analysis with other Forest Service lands data, and improved cartographic applications where Census data and Forest Service data need to be depicted in the same map. Features within Forest Service Administrative Forest boundaries may have been modified by the Forest Service for improved accuracy and spatial coincidence (vertical integration).

Copyright Text: The Forest Service uses the most current and complete data available. GIS data and product accuracy may vary. They may be: developed from sources of differing accuracy, accurate only at certain scales, based on modeling or interpretation, incomplete while being created or revised, etc. Using GIS products for purposes other than those for which they were created, may yield inaccurate or misleading results. The Forest Service reserves the right to correct, update, modify, or replace, GIS products without notification.
