I am looking for a data set representing the internationally recognized boundary of the United States (land boundary and territorial water boundary). I was hoping to find just a few simple lists of lat/lon points, maybe around 6 arcminute resolution, one for the lower 48, one for Alaska, one for Hawaii.

If anyone can point me to a good resouce, it would be appreciated.

There is no recognized boundary that I am aware of. :D

This isn't internationally recognized, but was created in concert with Canada and Mexico:
National Atlas North American Boundaries. Maybe you can start there for terrestrial boundaries.

Here is an article in the ESRI library about maritime boundary delimitation with GIS (not that simple). Here is a link to the database discussed in the paper.

It's a little challenge to find, but the NOAA Office of Coast Survey is your official source. See:
