Note: The contour maps that were scanned to produce the DEC web pages vary in accuracy. Some of the maps have been transcribed several times from either decent academic maps (e.g., the Finger Lakes) or hand drawn field sketches that were done during the old Biological Surveys from the 1920s and 30s. A few newer maps, such as Upper Saranac Lake and Lake George were based on digital maps and so will be much more accurate.
