International Boundaries - an authoritative source?


At the request of the FGDC Coordination Group, Alison Dishman attempted to locate an authoritative set of international boundaries that could be used by Federal Agencies.  Her findings:

•NGA and State coordinate on Int’l Boundaries

•State responsible for depiction of Int’l Boundaries on US maps

•Digital International Boundaries Database (DIBDB) – NGA’s official classified repository

•State has large scale boundaries for limited Government use – attempting to lift these restrictions

•UN has Second Administrative Level Boundaries project (SALB) but online version is not current and is in constant revision  

(This table details the inquiries regarding international boundaries)
