California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (using data from BOR and DOC FMMP) 2004 County Boundaries (1:24000) vector digital data gis.ca.gov/casil/boundaries/cnty24k In late 1996, the Dept of Conservation (DOC) surveyed state and federal agencies about the county boundary coverage they used. As a result, DOC adopted the 1:24, 000 scale Bureau of Reclamation dataset (USGS source) for their Farmland Mapping and Monitoring Program (FMMP) but with several major and minor modifications. Detailed documentation of these changes is provided by FMMP and included as part of the data dictionary. Ideally, state and federal agencies should be using the same framework data for common themes such as county boundaries. This layer provides an initial offering as "best available" at 1:24,000 scale. Additional improvements, including a review of data sources for the coastline, can be added over time based on interagency review and agreement on proposed changes.
