Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute values were validated via cross-checks with exisiting data resources including photographs, maps, imagery, and scientific reports.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All line work is checked for topological integrity and to ensure that polygons are fully enclosed, no duplicate lines or points exists, line segments are composed of sequentially numbered coordinate pairs, intersecting lines are separated by a node, and no dangling lines exist. Topological checks and strucuturing are performed using the ArcInfo software. Data dictionary specification are automatically implemented via the ESRI Info database management software. Data collected from external data providers are randomly verified.
Completeness_Report:
The data are complete with respect to the data publication date and scale.

Process_Description:
Data was created from the comma-delimted ASCII file MS_deci.html containing x,y coordinate pairs. The coverage was  projected by MARIS staff from Lat/Long into MSTM. Churches were extracted using the GNIS attribute type = 'church' meaning building used for religious worship (chapel, mosque, synagogue, tabernacle, temple).
