Some of the maps are of incorporated areas and their extents are not shown in the index shapefile. Many areas of Montana are not covered by maps because no data were available or because they were deemed to not include any floodplains in populated areas.No maps were included for the rural areas of Pondera, Liberty, Toole, Chouteau, Daniels, Sheridan, Petroleum, Judith Basin, Fergus, Meagher, Musselshell, Beaverhead, Madison, or Carter counties.The data were available through the Montana State Library Digital Atlas application between 2002 and 2015.
