Additional Information Name dropped December 9, 2009 because mapping from newer data shows that the descriptor term 'regio' is not appropriate for this area.

The boundaries shown on the maps above are approximate and are intended only to portray the locations of named features and their rough extents.

Changes in the control network drop down are not reflected automatically on the map. You may wish to select a different layer on the map to match the control network for the geometry you are viewing.
