Agricultural Atlas Maps | Star Tree Map Index | Cartographic Boundary Files

The cartographic boundary files are generalized, digital vector files of state- and county-level geographic areas for which 2002 Census of Agriculture data are reported.  The cartographic boundary files can be used with Geographic Information System (GIS) software as a base for medium to small-scale thematic mapping.

These boundary files are not map images. They were developed to support USDA-NASS projects involving map production for the 2002 Agricultural Atlas of the United States.

The cartographic boundary files on this site are in ESRITM shapefile format.
