LineageSectors were created by aggregating beats which are no longer used. Therefore, all sector boundaries are boundaries from the old beats. These boundaries now include the new Downtown Division and its three sectors.-04/21/06

Maintenance descriptionLaura Vittorio in TPD sends updated shape files when there are changes. She sends two layers, a TPD team layer and a TPD sector layer. The sector areas are smaller than the team areas and several sectors make up each team area. Using geodatabase with topology rules, KJ cleans up slivers and use identity tool (overlay analysis) to pick up the team attribute for the sector layer. The resulting sector layer goes in the library.
