This coverage was identified on the USGS Water Resources NSDI Node site at https://nsdi.usgs.gov. The coverage contains the County boundaries of the continental United States. These boundaries were derived from the Digital Line Graph (DLG) files representing the 1:2,000,000 scale map in the National Atlas of the United States.
The data was then modified by USDA Forest Service Personnel for use in the Southern Forest Resource Assessment and exported to a shapefile.
