Summary

The data contained within this collection is designed to fulfill the Arkansas GIS Office legislative mandate to coordinate with the municipalities of the state on digital mapping and to submit a consolidated report of legal boundaries to the United States Census Bureau. Following are the citations of the law. Arkansas Code 14-38-116. Map required with Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Office upon incorporation or unincorporation. Before an entity undertakes an incorporation or unincorporation proceeding under this chapter, the entity shall coordinate with the Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Office for preparation of legal descriptions and digital mapping for the relevant incorporated or unincorporated areas. Arkansas Code 14-40-101. Map required with Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Office upon annexation, consolidation, or detachment. Before an entity undertakes an annexation, consolidation, or detachment proceeding under this chapter, the entity shall coordinate with the Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Office for preparation of legal descriptions and digital mapping for the relevant annexation, consolidation, and detachment areas. SECTION 3. Arkansas Code 15-21-504, concerning the duties, responsibilities, and authority of the Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Board, is amended to add an additional subsection to read as follows: (n)(1) The board shall provide mapping services to an entity undertaking an: (A) Annexation, consolidation, or detachment proceeding under 14-40-101; or (B) Incorporation or unincorporation proceeding under 14-38-116. (2) The Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Office shall submit a consolidated report of changes in legal boundaries because of an annexation, consolidation, detachment, incorporation, or unincorporation proceeding on an annual basis to the United States Census Bureau's Boundary and Annexation Survey.

Description

The municipal boundary is a publication of polygons of all incorporated cities in Arkansas. The Arkansas GIS Office maintains this file in coordination with the municipalities of the State. It represents the contemporary boundary of the city.Data developed with coordinate geometry (COGO) from legal descriptions were used. When necessary the data were adjusted to conform to known physical features. This dataset does not represent exact legal boundaries as per surveyed description, but, rather a set of boundaries used for the administrative purposes that conforms to logical & administrative rules. These polygons may be edited for the purpose of small spatial alignment changes based on new, enhanced or improved supporting basemap data, such as orthoimagery, public land survey, or cadastral data that improves the spatial accuracy of the existing geometry.
