Description:
Abstract:
Combined incorporated city boundaries and unincorporated Urban Growth Areas (UGA) as defined by the Growth Management Act. Updates made in 2017 were made by collecting city limits and urban growth area boundary infomation from each of Washington's 39 counties, where available.
Purpose:
This data set is a municipal information layer for the Washington State Department of Ecology, Office of the Chief Information Officer-Geospatial Program Office, and the Washington State Department of Commerce. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the Washington State County Parcels layer to enable state agencies to locate and identify municipal data for the purpose of fulfilling Washington Administrative Code (WAC) protections, regulations and services.
Supplemental_Information:
1. The Washington State Department of Ecology maintains City/Urban Growth Area boundaries to service its own geographic information business needs. 2. Boundaries follow current county/city maps and GIS layers provided or displayed by each county and are matched to the Washington State County Parcels layer boundaries defined by each county where possible. Where there is a conflict between the city limits and UGA boundary, it is assumed that the city limits layer is the correct one. 3. This dataset is not meant to represent a legal survey boundary description but rather, follow and include, all ownership parcels within the visual boundaries of a City or UGA. 4. Ecology does not in any way guarantee the accuracy of this information. Individual cities/counties need to be contacted for the most up to date data. 5. City and Urban Growth Area boundaries can be changed at any time by cities and the counties. 6. Ecology did not receive digital files for city boundaries from Adams, Columbia, and Whitman Counties. City boundaries for these counites remained the same as the 2016 version.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Geometry edits made by Ecology GIS staff are based on visual inspection of City/UGA boundaries, county parcel boundaries where available and NAIP digital 1 meter color othrophotos. Where possible boundaries are matched to a county parcel boundary layer using a 10-20 foot snap tolerance in ArcMap. Attribute item 'ORIGIN' contains specific boundry line edit information.
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
Visually checked for changes to boundaries by comparing 2017 city and UGA boundaries to the 2016 version of CityUGA.

Process_Description:
Starting with the 2015 version of CityUGA, external boundaries of CityUGA areas were updated to match new UGA boundaries acquired from counties. Edits were matched to county parcel boundaries where possible. Decrepencites between the City and UGA layers were decieded in favor of the city limits.
