Overview

This layer represents the district boundaries of the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife . These districts are used by DFW and its parent agency, the Department of Fish and Game , for administrative purposes.

Two layers - polygon and arc feature classes - are stored in ArcSDE as DFWDISTRICTS_POLY and DFWDISTRICTS_ARC.

Production

The layer was developed by the Department of Fish and Game GIS Program by dissolving (combining) poygons from MassGIS' 1:25,000 Towns layer. The arc layer was generated by MassGIS using ESRI'S ArcGIS 9.0 software.
