Location Codes

Data format: Shapefile

File or table name: LocCode_Public

Coordinate system: Geographic

Theme keywords: LocCodes, Codes, Public, Location, Boundary, Boundaries, Tax, Sales, Use District

Abstract: An intersection of Washington State counties, Incorporated cities, Regional Transportation Authority, Public Transportation Authority and Community Empowerment Zone boundaries depicting sales and use tax location code areas as polygons. Participating boundary datasets are updated quarterly as annexation and boundary change notices are received. This dataset is created as part of geoprocessing to generate quarterly updates. Dataset intended use is to determine applicable sales and use tax location code by location.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.
