These data contained within these five categories are for information purposes only and may not represent actual conditions.

The data displayed here were created from available public records and existing map sources, not direct field surveys. Data features from all sources have been adjusted to achieve the "best fit". While great care was taken in this process, maps from different sources rarely agree as to the precise location of geographic features or land ownership boundaries.

These data do not represent or intend to represent official or legal boundaries of private, tribal or public lands. To learn about definitive boundaries, contact the state, federal, or tribal agency's in question.

Also, the data in CCH1 are not perfect -- it is a work in progress with many hundreds of contributions from the community and members of CCH. Please send us fixes if you find errors.
