Data Quality Information:


Attribute accuracy:
Attribute accuracy report:
Attribute accuracy has been tested by manually comparing hard copy plots of the digital data with source materails or by interactively querying and verifying on screen.

Logical consistency report:
The data has been checked to make sure that all intended polygons are closed, that there are no unintended undershoots or dangles and that there is only one label point per polygon.  This does not preclude the presence of one or more of these errors.

Completeness report:
Complete

Lineage:
Source information:
Source scale denominator: 24,000

Process step:
Process description:
Data were compiled on 1:24,000 scale USGS paper or mylar quads and digitized from those quads.  Coverages have been checked and edited with ArcInfo 7.2.1 and 8.2 or ArcView 3.x.

Entity and Attribute Information:


Detailed description:
*Name: az_wsa83.aat


Entity type:
Entity type label: az_wsa83.aat
*Entity type type: Feature Class
*Entity type count: 2

Attribute:
*Attribute label: WSA_DEF_FEATURE
Attribute definition:
This value refers to the natural, manmade, or mapping feature that represents the WSA boundary.  This value is recorded on each arc.  This field is used when coincident lines are part of the WSA boundary.  For example, if a portion of the WSA boundary follows a stream, the WSA_DEF_FEATURE would be stream, if following a contour line, the WSA_DEF_FEATURE would be contour, etc.  Entries for this field should be lowercase.  If the WSA_DEF_FEATURE was not used when digitizing or updating this theme this field should be blank.  (See Appendix C for the official list of defining features.)  This value should be in lowercase.

*Attribute type: Character
*Attribute width: 30
*Attribute output width: 30


Attribute:
*Attribute label: WSA_COORD_SOURCE
Attribute definition:
This value refers to the actual source of the defining feature.  It is the digital map source of the original arc that makes up the wilderness boundary.   For example, if a portion of the boundary is a contour line the WLD_DEF_FEATURE would be contour and the WLD_COORD_SOURCE would be 24K Digital Elevation Model (DEM).  If other coverage's are used then the WLD_COORD_SOURCE would be the coverage name.  For example, 100K DLG or 24K DLG.

*Attribute type: Character
*Attribute width: 20
*Attribute output width: 20


Detailed description:
*Name: az_wsa83.pat


Entity type:
*Entity type label: az_wsa83.pat
*Entity type type: Feature Class
*Entity type count: 2

Attribute:
*Attribute label: WSA_NUMBER
Attribute definition:
This value refers to either the number assigned as a result of the wilderness inventory, or other documents, such as the enabling legislation or planning documents.  The input for this field is a combination of alphanumeric characters in combination of upper or lowercase.  For example, NV-010-347AB.  Inholding polygons should not be given a WSA number.

*Attribute type: Character
*Attribute width: 20
*Attribute output width: 20


Attribute:
*Attribute label: WSA_SUITABILITY
Attribute definition:
This is a coded value that indicates the BLM recommendation on wilderness suitability.  Inholdings are not considered in the suitability determination and should be labeled 0.  0=N/A (not applicable)  1=suitable  2=non-suitable 3=no recommendation.

*Attribute type: Integer
*Attribute width: 1
*Attribute output width: 1


Attribute:
*Attribute label: WSA_NAME
Attribute definition:
This value refers to the official name of the WSA.  It may contain spaces, plus a combination of upper and lowercase alpha characters.  For example, Bright Star WSA.  Inholding polygons should be labeled "inholding".

*Attribute type: Character
*Attribute width: 30
*Attribute output width: 30
