Title: Maine Regional Service Centers 2012 GeoLibrary
Geospatial Data Presentation Form: vector digital data
Abstract: Regional Service Centers depicts regional service centers in Maine at 1:24,000 scale. There are three types of regional service centers: 1) entire municipality, 2) a census designated place adjacent to a full municipality that has been defined as a service center, and 3) an urban compact area adjacent to a full municipality that has been defined as a service center. Each regional service center, regardless of which of the three types, is defined as such based on a calculation using employment, retail sales, service sector jobs, and housing services. The full calculation and explanation can be found at the website for the Municipal Planning Assistance Program at the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry for the state of Maine. The boundaries for Regional Service Centers were created using the Maine GIS layer METWP24. For those service centers in category 1) above, the METWP24 boundary was used. For those service centers falling in either category 2) or 3) above, the METWP24 boundary was modified by hand to approximate the census designated place or urban compact area.
Purpose: Regional Service Centers was created to show the regional service centers in Maine at 1:24,000 scale. Data at this scale is suitable for detailed studies and local planning.
