    On some maps, there are solid lines dividing the states, showing state lines..... and the dots & dashes (or dotted lines) actually show the COUNTY lines.

    if they are between the states, maybe they show the borders of the states. I would checkt the key on the map to make sure though

    Many times different time zones are marked this way.
