dsPurpose The dataset was developed largely for cartographic purposes, for the display of concentrations of populations. It can be symbolized with the available attributes to show the largest cities in the state or county (typically county seats), as well as very small populated cities, townships, unorganized territories, and tribal populations. The dataset can also be symbolized by population count where figures are available.
