Publication Date: APR 2018. A polygon layer of all city boundaries in New York State. The city features and attributes in this layer are the same as those in the Cities_Towns layer in this service. The data was originally a compilation of U.S. Geological Survey 1:100,000-scale digital vector files and NYS Department of Transportation 1:24,000-scale and 1:75,000-scale digital vector files. Boundaries were revised to 1:24,000-scale positional accuracy and selectively updated based on municipal boundary reviews, court decisions and NYS Department of State Local Law filings for annexations, dissolutions, and incorporations. Currently, boundary changes are made based on NYS Department of State Local Law filings (locallaws.dos.ny.gov/). Additional updates and corrections are made as needed in partnership with municipalities. Additional metadata, including field descriptions, can be found at the NYS GIS Clearinghouse: gis.ny.gov/gisdata/inventories/details.cfm?DSID=92....
