urban area definitions
Urban Area Definitions
  • Represent densely developed territory, encompassing residential, commercial, and other non-residential urban land uses in which social and economic interactions occur.
  • Represent the “Urban Footprint”
  • Structure has been explicitly defined through measures based primarily on population counts and residential population density
  • Criteria have also accounted for non-residential urban land uses that are functionally part of the urban landscape
hops and jumps
Hops and Jumps
  • Use ArcGIS Network Analyst
  • Connect urban territory through road connections of less than 0.5 miles for hops and 2.5 miles for jumps
  • Evaluate blocks on each side of connection to form highest density corridor
post hop jump enclaves
Post Hop/Jump Enclaves

Less than or equal to 5 square miles, surrounded by qualifying land only

post hop jump enclaves1
Post Hop/Jump Enclaves

Less than or equal to 5 square miles, surrounded by qualifying land and non-qualifying water territory

indentations
Indentations
  • Use closure lines to close off areas that are indentations in the boundary.
  • The length of the closure line serves as the diameter of a circle. If four circles with the diameter fit into the indentation, we add territory to the UA.
  • If Ai ≥ 4π(½Li)2 and Ai ≤ 3.5 where Ai = area of indentation and Li = length of indentation closure line, then add the territory.
