Boundary Files Site News

Welcome to the U.S. Census Bureau's Cartographic Boundary Files Web Site. The boundary files available here are selected generalized extracts from the Census Bureau's TIGER geographic database and are designed for use in a Geographic Information System (GIS) or similar mapping system. These are not map images. They have been developed for various internal Census Bureau projects and have been made available here to the general public on an "as is" basis.

Cartographic Boundary File Formats
The cartographic boundary files on this site are available in the following formats:

ARC/INFO EXPORT (.e00) format
ArcView Shapefile (.shp) format
ARC/INFO Ungenerate (ASCII) format
