    A layer package is provided containing shapefiles for the United States District Court boundaries every year from 1900-2000. These boundaries allow for visualizations of data at the district court level, built up from county-level data. The files are intended for use in ArcGIS; other software packages may or may not be able to interpret them correctly. Also included is the county-district crosswalk file these maps are based on.
