Federally Owned Land Polygon Features of the United States
Entry ID: UTC_landpolygonfeatures

Abstract: This data set consists of federally owned land polygon features of the United
States. The data set was created by extracting federal land polygon features
from the individual 1:2,000,000-scale State boundary Digital Line Graph (DLG)
files produced by the U.S. Geological Survey. These files were then appended
into a single coverage. This is a revised version of the June 1998 data set.
There may be private in holdings within the boundaries of Federal Lands in this
data set.

These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the national
level, and for large regional areas. The data should be displayed and analyzed
at scales appropriate for 1:2,000,000-scale data. No responsibility is assumed
by the U.S. Geological Survey in the use of these data.
