LA County City Boundaries

Principal attributes include:

NO: corresponds with numbers on the tables displayed on City Annexation Maps.

ANNEX_No: is a text version of the "NO" field listed above. Because this field is only used for the Long Beach and Los Angeles Annexation Maps, this value is null for all other cities.

NAME: is the official name under which the annexation was filed.

TYPE: is used to indicate which legal action occurred.

A - represents an Annexation to that city. D - represents a Detachment from that city. V - is used to indicate the annexation was rendered Void or withdrawn before an effective date could be declared. 33 - Some older city annexation maps indicate a city boundary declared 'as of February 8, 1933'.

ANNEX_AREA: is the land area annexed or detached, in square miles, per the recorded legal description.

TOTAL_AREA: is the cumulative total land area for each city, arranged chronologically.

SHADE: is used by some of our cartographers to store the color used on printed maps.
