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.
