Maps of 2000 Urbanized Areas

The Census Bureau has created several options for viewing the boundaries of urbanized areas and urban clusters. The Census Bureau's Map Products web site provides large-scale maps (30" x 33") in Adobe pdf format that can be downloaded and printed to a large format color plotter. The Census Bureau's American FactFinder web site includes an interactive geographic information system (GIS) that allows users to navigate to a specific location and display the urban boundaries in relation to other geographic features.

For those users with access to GIS software, the Census Bureau has also created geo-spatial databases for all of its geographic boundaries. These databases are derived from the Census TIGER/Line geographic database and can be downloaded directly from the Census Bureau web site.
