Overview

The DCAMM Regions layer represents boundaries used by the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) for planning and administrative purposes. The region boundaries, based on groupings of municipalities, were delimited using data provided to MassGIS by DCAMM staff.

A polygon feature class is named DCAMM_REGIONS_POLY. A line feature class with attributes for boundary types is named DCAMM_REGIONS_ARC.

The polygon feature class was updated in August 2021 to be based on the Survey Towns Boundaries (previously based on the USGS-based town boundaries).

Attributes

The polygon attribute table contains the following field:

REGION Name of the DCAMM region (Central, Metro Boston, Northeast, Southeast, Western)

The arc attribute table contains the field OUTLINE, coded as follows:

1
2
4
State boundary
DCAMM region boundary
Coastline

Maintenance

MassGIS maintains the data.
