Title: Bay Area Counties, California, 2006, Tele Atlas(R)
Abstract: <DIV STYLE="text-align:Left;"><DIV><DIV><P><SPAN>Dynamap(R)/2000 County Boundary file with a shoreline buffer is a non-generalized polygon layer that represents all U.S. government-defined entities named County. A County is a type of governmental unit that is the primary legal subdivision of every U.S. state. In Louisiana, the County-equivalent entity is 'parish.' In Alaska, the statistically equivalent entities are the organized 'boroughs,' 'city and boroughs,' 'municipalities' and 'census areas.' In four states (Maryland, Missouri, Nevada and Virginia), there are one or more incorporated places that function as County equivalents. These are known as 'independent cities.' In Puerto Rico, the County equivalent is a municipio. This file contains a 'shoreline buffer' that extends out from the shoreline to the political limits of the census entity. The political limit is usually 12 miles or less from the shoreline into the abutting water feature. The cartographical representation of a shoreline buffer is visibly apparent for census areas that border the Atlantic Ocean, The Gulf of Mexico, The Pacific Ocean and The Great Lakes.</SPAN></P></DIV></DIV></DIV>
