I know there is previous question about this topic but there is no exact answer. Actually I was wondering, does city boundaries cover all around the nation without space?

I mean, for MA I found two different dataset. One of them is towns (from MASSGIS): enter image description here

One of them is places (that includes towns and cities from Census Bureau's 2010 TIGER/Line shapefiles):

Which one is true?

  • not all area is considered municipal, the county may maintain it (unincorporated) so there may be gaps. – NULL.Dude Jul 25 '18 at 17:03
  • New York State puts out their own city/town/village boundaries. If each state has a dataset I would go by that because it's usually the right boundary if it's develop by that state's GIS office. Otherwise if a state doesn't then I would use Tiger data. I don't think that there is one merged dataset. – enolan Jul 25 '18 at 17:04
