TIGERweb Economic Legend

This legend lists types of Census Bureau Geographies and Features, grouped by Map Service, and provides examples of their map Symbols and Label Styles. Symbol Scales and Label Scales depict the range of map scales at which the layers and corresponding labels are available (i.e., can be viewed); hovering the mouse over an individual circle will display the scale as a representative fraction. Reference Scales portray the relative position of the scales in the "zooming spectrum."
