Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the county outline (boundary) polygon for Chester County, PA.
Purpose:
As part of the base map data layers, the Regional County and Municipal Boundary layers are an integral part of Chester County's Geographic Information System. Base map data layers are accessed by personnel in most County departments for basic applications such as viewing, querying, and map output production. More advanced user applications may focus on planning, public works, or utilities purposes (including defining boundaries, managing assets and facilities, integrating attribute databases with geographic features, spatial analysis, and presentation output).
Supplemental_Information:
Chester County Municipal Boundaries were digitized in 1993 from the original hand-drawn map sheet linens, first produced in 1959.  The digital file has been maintained regularly, edited not only when official changes to municipal boundaries have occurred, but also in areas where research of historic legal descriptions and plans has shown errors or inconsistencies.  FIPS Codes were obtained from the following web resource: http://mcdc.missouri.edu/webrepts/commoncodes/.

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
All values are correct 
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All land base vector (planimetric) features have been compiled to meet the National Map Accuracy Standard for 1:2,400 scale mapping using first order, fully analytical digital stereoplotters. Accordingly, these features were compiled from aerial photography dated April 7, 1993, controlled analytically from the ground points captured using first order global positioning system equipment. Planimetric coordinates are based on the Pennsylvania State Plane Coordinate System South Zone and North American Datum 1983.
