Process Step
Process Description
Game Zone boundaries where generated by using a general county boundary layer and merging counties located in a particular game zone.   To deleianted the Game Zone boundary between 1 and 2, the written description was used from SC Code of Law Section 50-1-60 (1) to determine the boundary by on screen digitization using DLG 1:24K railroad and road data sets.
