State Area Measurements and Internal Point Coordinates

The table below provides land, water and total area measurements for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Island Areas.  The area measurements were derived from the Census Bureau's Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER®) database. The boundaries of the states and equivalent areas are as of January 1, 2010. The land and water areas, including their classifications, reflect base feature updates made in the MAF/TIGER® database through August, 2010.  The area measurements, in square kilometers and square miles, are for statistical purposes only.
