MunicipalBoundaries

Boundaries.Municipalities is a multi-purpose statewide dataset of municipal boundaries for cartography and approximate boundary identification.

Boundaries.Municipalities boundaries are maintained by AGRC with the help of many state, county, and local entities. Changes and updates are through certification by the Lt. Governor’s Office sent in by City and County Recorders offices. All features are adjusted to the current Geographic Coordinate Database (GCDB) points.

Data developed with coordinate geometry (COGO) from legal descriptions were used. When necessary the data was adjusted to conform to known physical features. This dataset does not represent exact legal boundaries, but, rather a set of boundaries used for the administrative purposes that conforms to logical & administrative rules (e.g. no two cities or redevelopment areas may cover the same geographic extent).

The native spatial reference for this dataset is UTM Zone 12N, NAD83 (0.01 meter coordinate precision).

There are no constraints or warranties with regard to the use of this dataset. Users are encouraged to attribute content to: State of Utah, SGID.

The municipal boundary dataset is maintained by AGRC in partnership with state and local government.

MetroTownships

Boundaries.MetroTownships is a multi-purpose statewide dataset of metro townships boundaries for cartography and approximate boundary identification.

Boundaries.MetroTownships boundaries represent unincorporated locations where the residents don't want to be part of an incorporated municipality but do want some say in how they are governed. They are maintained by AGRC with the help of many state, county, and local entities. Changes and updates are through certification by the Lt. Governor’s Office sent in by City and County Recorders offices. All features are adjusted to the current Geographic Coordinate Database (GCDB) points.

County Boundaries

Boundaries.Counties is a multi-purpose statewide dataset of county boundaries for cartography and approximate boundary identification. Includes July 2012 major update of Millard and Juab counties.

Boundaries.Counties boundaries are maintained by AGRC with the help of many state, county, and local entities. Changes and updates are through certification by the Lt. Governor’s Office sent in by City and County Recorders offices.

There is also a county boundaries dataset the has been adjusted to the updated Geographic Coordinate Database SGID10.BOUNDARIES.Counties_GCDB

The native spatial reference for this dataset is UTM Zone 12N, NAD83 (0.01 meter coordinate precision). The county boundary dataset is is maintained by AGRC in partnership with state and local government.

Utah

Boundaries.Utah is a dataset of the Utah state boundary.

Boundaries.Utah boundary is maintained by AGRC with the help of many state, county, and local entities. Changes and updates are through certification by the Lt. Governor’s Office sent in by City and County Recorders offices. All features are adjusted to the current Geographic Coordinate Database (GCDB) points.

Data developed with coordinate geometry (COGO) from legal descriptions were used. When necessary the data were adjusted to conform to known physical features. This dataset does not represent exact legal boundaries, but, rather a set of boundaries used for the administrative purposes that conforms to logical & administrative rules.

In addition to the boundary of the state of Utah this dataset contains another larger boundary around the state that can be used for cartographic purposes to mask other data layers that extend past the boundary of the state. The native spatial reference for this dataset is UTM Zone 12N, NAD83 (0.01 meter coordinate precision). The state boundary dataset is is maintained by AGRC in partnership with state and local government.
