East Kingdom Mapping Project (Take 2)

Wow.  I've really learned a lot about ArcGIS Online since my last post.  There is a private/subscription (paid) version and a public (free) version of accounts.  The public version is far more limited in what it can do, but in some ways, it makes an administrator much more concise with the data.  For example, there is a feature limit and file size limit, both of which I was well within.  However, there is also a limit to feature geometry.  In other words, a polygon cannot exceed a certain number of nodes or vertexes.  I discovered that the hard way.  I pretty much ended up deconstructing coastal features and replacing them with maritime zones.  Basically, I merged these zones with the coast line and islands features.  Oy.  What a job that was.  It simplified the geometry A LOT.  I then generalized the vertexes down to 10 meters which made it possible to upload the polygon files.  Anyway, the map link in my previous post is now dead and this is the new one:  I don't plan to change it anytime soon.  Enjoy!  =)
