(1) Software and scale compatibility. The commission uses geographic information system (GIS) software to track certificated authorities. When required by this chapter to file a map, a company must file that map in one of the methods described in (a) and (b) of this section.
(a) Electronic maps. A company may file an electronic map that is compatible with the commission's hardware and software. Before filing its map electronically, a company must contact the commission to determine whether its mapping software is compatible with that used by the commission.
(b) Paper maps. A company may file a paper map using United States Geological Survey (USGS) maps at a scale of 1:250,000 to show certificate boundaries. The commission may require maps at a scale of 1:24,000 to clearly resolve any inconsistencies. USGS maps are available through the Washington state department of natural resources and various private vendors.

(a) Clearly show townships, ranges, streets, county lines, and any other feature described in the certificate;
(b) Be clearly labeled to identify the features described in the certificate;
