ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT

Quality control was high and the data was verified with visual methods to check for coding errors.

LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT

The earthquakes have been compiled from many published catalogs of earthquakes. The more recent, instrumentally recorded locations were taken from publications of the U.S.G.S., National Earthquake Information Center, and the Center for Earthquake Research and Information at the University of Memphis. Locations were given in various forms from latitudes/longitutes coordinates to a town name.

COMPLETENESS REPORT

All locations have been added and all attributes filled out.

POSITIONAL ACCURACY HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY

HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT

Accuracy is represented in feet. Where as the historical location of an epicenter maybe highly unaccurate, the placement of the point meets National Mapping Standards.

QUANTITATIVE HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY ASSESSMENT HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY VALUE 40

HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY EXPLANATION

The value represents the accuracy of USGS 1:24,000 topographic quadrange which were sometimes used to pull a coordinate location.

VERTICAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY VERTICAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT

No vertical Accuracy reported
