Title: Incorporated Areas (cities) in Three County Area: Snohomish;Pierce;King
Feature Count: 92
Feature Type: Polygon
Abstract: Compilation of city jurisdictional information from three counties: King, Pierce and Snohomish. Uses the best available information from each of the 3 counties to produce the composite product. Updated whenever changes are made to any one of the source data sets. For King County this will be whenever CITY_AREA (parent is CITY_ANNEX) is updated to Spatial Data Warehouse. Pierce and Snohomish updates are shared with King County on quarterly to semi-annual basis. Updates are made so that the King County portion of this composite is synchronous with the information in the master King County jurisdiction layer.
Purpose: General cartographic, analysis and query of jurisdictional (city) information for the three county area. Does not include data (i.e., no polygon) for unincorporated areas. Even though this layer is built from and kept current to the contributing sources, users should may wish to use the separate source data layers when working in a more limited area to take advantage of any information or functionality not transferred to the composite. CITY_3CO stores only a single user attribute: NAME.
