Map of U.S. New England City and Town Area (NECTA)
You can easily create a map of U.S. New England City and Town Area (NECTA) using Mapline. NECTA is a term used to describe a geographic and statistical entity in the region of New England in the USA. They are similar to metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) except that they are not defined in country-wide counties but only within the towns of the 6 states in New England regions. NECTAs can be metropolitan or micropolitan areas. Whereas the latter has an urban core with a population from 10,000 to 50,000, the former has an urban core with a population of 50,000 and up. Using Mapline, you can easily create a map of U.S. New England City and Town Area. In New England Region, towns (or civil divisions) are a more important level of government than counties. Because towns are smaller than counties, NECTAs provides a closer estimation to metropolitan areas.
