Boundaries of Minnesota

This is the MnDOT user-accepted version of the state boundary. It is a composite of all of the county boundaries, as accepted by MnDOT for general purpose use. This boundary represents a pre-1947 state boundary as it does not recognize the 1947 states compact signed between Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota, which defined the boundary/boundaries within Lake Superior. This boundary measures approximately 84,365 square miles, and excludes the portion of Lake Superior that is legally defined as part of the state of Minnesota.<br/><br/>Check other metadata records in this package for more information on Boundaries of Minnesota Information.<br/><br/><br/>Link to ESRI Feature Service:<br /><br/><b>Boundaries of Minnesota</b>: <a href="https://webgis.dot.state.mn.us/65agsf1/rest/services/sdw_govnt/STATE/FeatureServer">Boundaries of Minnesota</a><br /><br/><br/>
