This is a copy of the MassGIS Community Boundaries (Towns) from Survey Points data layer. This political boundary datalayer has been created from survey coordinates extracted from the 68-volume Harbor and Lands Commission Town Boundary Atlas for the 351 communities (cities and towns) in Massachusetts. The Atlas was published in the early 1900s and has been updated with legislated changes by the Survey Section of the Massachusetts Highway Department.
The “Newton City Boundary” data layer is this same layer with a definition query (Town_ID = 207) to filter it to only display Newton.
Features and Attributes:
Polygons have a town name and MassGIS Town ID code. There is a related table called MASS_TOWN_INFO that contains other fields from this layer including some basic demographics and ID codes.
