Centroid points for incorporated places and Indian Territories are mathematically derived based on GPO published 1:24,000-scale NYS Civil Boundaries data. Points for unincorporated places and neighborhoods are located based on NYS Department of Transportation 1:24,000-scale raster quadrangle maps and local input.
