U.S. Census 2000 Data: Town Boundaries (Arcs)

Description
The CENSUS2000TOWNS_ARC layer represents municipal boundaries (line feature class) for Massachusetts, as delineated in the U.S. Census Bureau's TIGER/line files developed for the 2000 Decennial Census. This layer was produced by MassGIS for display purposes when mapping any of the other Census 2000 layers. The town boundary and coastline features developed by the Census Bureau do not match those in MassGIS' own Towns layer, and these spatial discrepancies become more apparent at larger scales. MassGIS recommends the use of this layer when plotting municipal boundaries with the other Census 2000 layers.
