In particular, "About Maps" says that the atlas "is designed for subject indexing of legislation, photographs, and other documents in the City Clerk's Office and Seattle Municipal Archives" and "is not designed or intended as an 'official' City of Seattle neighborhood map. There are many different ideas of what neighborhood districts exist in Seattle and what their names are…"
