LATAInfo is a map database of Local Access Transport Areas (LATAs) across the United States. LATAs are geographic regions unique to the telecommunications industry. Telephone calls between two parties in different LATAs must, by law, be ‘transported’ by a long-distance carrier. In general, each LATA contains a single major metropolitan area.
