Description:
Abstract:
The New Hampshire Political Boundaries (PB) coverage provides a digital representation of corporate boundaries at the town, county, and state level. It was derived from the 1:24,000-scale USGS Digital Line Graphs (DLGs).
Purpose:
These data may be used to construct municipal, regional, or statewide base maps.
Supplemental_Information:
Data distribution tile: statewide

In ARCE format, the coverage is a combined polygon and line coverage. In shapefile format, the two data types are written separately to PBP (polygon) and PBA (line) shapefiles.

This data is not be used as a legal definition of town boundaries in the state.

Data_Quality_Information:

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The primary attribute associated with each polygon is the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) code, which was generated directly from the DLGs. Additional attributes were linked from pre-existing files based on the FIPS code. Attributes were verified by visual inspection - both on-screen and on computer-generated hardcopy.
Logical_Consistency_Report: Polygon and arc-node topology exists.
Completeness_Report: Data is complete for the tile.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The data were generated from standard USGS 1:24,000/1:25,000-scale Digital Line Graphs, and thus meet National Map Accuracy standards.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The data were generated from standard USGS 1:24,000-1:25,000-scale Digital Line Graphs, and thus meet National Map Accuracy standards.

The DLG files provided the basic coordinate information for the data layer, as well as the fundamental feature codes.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The DLG-3 files for the 213 7.5-minute quadrangles in the state were converted to Arc/Info coverages using "DLGARC". Line topology was constructed, and attributes were appended using standard Arc/Info utilities. Each tile was then projected from UTM meters (Zone 18 or 19), NAD27, to NH State Plane feet, NAD83. The individual tiles were then edgematched, allowing for movement of arcs at the quadrangle seams of up to 10 ft. to create the statewide layer.

Five-digit version of the Federal Information Processing Standard Code, used to uniquely identify each town. The format for NH GRANIT town FIPS codes is ccttt, where the first two digits (cc) reflect the county FIPS code (01 to 19, assigned alphabetically and in increments of 2) and the last three digits (ttt) reflect the town within each county (005 to nnn, assigned alphabetically and in increments of 5).
