The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is used extensively to store geographic related data for cities, counties, and states.  Displaying a map and some of its layers is one of the ways which a GIS system can be used to examine a part of the data.  We make every effort to ensure the accuracy of this data.  The GIS system online however is not survey grade and has locations where some degree of error takes place.  Please pass along any concerns or ideas.
