Overview

This layer represents the boundaries of the Massachusetts Homeland Security Planning Regions. These regions are used by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) for Homeland Security Planning.

Two layers - polygon and arc feature classes - are stored in ArcSDE as HLSPREGIONS_POLY and HLSPREGIONS_ARC.

Production

The layer was developed by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency 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.
