Administrative Boundaries feature dataset for Maine
Feature class Description Publication Date
cnty100arc Maine county delineations at 1:100k; lines. See metadata in ArcCatalog. From MEGIS. 2005
cnty100poly Maine county delineations at 1:100k; polygons. See metadata in ArcCatalog. From MEGIS. 2005
cnty24l CNTY24L (lines) contains state and county boundaries for Maine, mapped at 1:24,000 scale. The dataset has polygon topology and was created in Arc/Info from METWP24 by a select on arcs coded TYPE = state, county, and coastline. From MEGIS. 1/18/2020
cnty24p CNTY24P (polygons) contains state and county boundaries for Maine, mapped at 1:24,000 scale. The dataset has polygon topology and was created in Arc/Info from METWP24 by a select on arcs coded TYPE = state, county, and coastline. From MEGIS. 1/18/2020
cnty24pd CNTY24PD (polygons dissolved) contains state and county boundaries for Maine, mapped at 1:24,000 scale. The dataset has polygon topology and was created in Arc/Info from METWP24 by a select on arcs coded TYPE = state, county, and coastline. 1/18/2020
meoutl Outline of Maine; useful for small scale locator maps. Uncertain of source.

metwp24l METWP24L (lines)depicts political boundaries, common town names, and geocodes for Maine at 1:24,000 scale. The coverage was created from USGS, 7.5 minute map series, town boundaries. The Maine GIS base layer COAST, which contained Maine's coastal Mean High Water (MHW) mark and Maine islands, were used in the development of METWP24. To correct mapping errors and reflect changes to Minor Civil Division (MCD) boundaries, arcs and polygons were added to or updated in METWP24 from: photorevised USGS data; Maine GIS base layer coincident features; legal descriptions; GPS data; and Maine Department of Transportation (MEDOT) engineering plans. METWP24 contains USGS 1:100,000 scale data and U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Census, TIGER Line Files 1990 and 2000 where these provide a more correct or best available representation of a dataset feature.From MEGIS. 1/18/2020
