2015 Cartographic Boundary File, State-Consolidated City for Georgia, 1:500,000

Metadata Updated: July 22, 2016

The 2015 cartographic boundary KMLs are simplified representations of selected geographic areas from the U.S. Census Bureau's Master Address File / Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) Database (MTDB). These boundary files are specifically designed for small-scale thematic mapping. When possible, generalization is performed with the intent to maintain the hierarchical relationships among geographies and to maintain the alignment of geographies within a file set for a given year. Geographic areas may not align with the same areas from another year. Some geographies are available as nation-based files while others are available only as state-based files.

                             A consolidated city is a unit of local government for which the functions of an incorporated place and its county or minor civil
                             division (MCD) have merged.  This action results in both the primary incorporated place and the county or MCD continuing to exist as
                             legal entities, even though the county or MCD performs few or no governmental functions and has few or no elected officials.  Where
                             this occurs, and where one or more other incorporated places in the county or MCD continue to function as separate governments, even
                             though they have been included in the consolidated government, the primary incorporated place is referred to as a consolidated city.
                             The Census Bureau classifies the separately incorporated places within the consolidated city as place entities and creates a separate
                             place (balance) record for the portion of the consolidated city not within any other place.
