I am in favor of importing park boundaries in particular because it is
usually impractical to survey them in the traditional way: park managers
don't want random unsupervised people wandering off trail trying to find
park boundaries. The boundaries might be on dangerous terrain. Park
boundaries are also often not possible to spot from aerial imagery.
Rivers, waterways, etc are best obtained from NHD.
