        <procdesc>Data was assembled using information from the Oregon State Office and from various federal, state, and county agencies. When data from multiple sources covered the same area, the data was then assessed for best quality content and accuracy. Priorities were determined for acceptance. Data with positional accuracy statements were first choice (GCDB data). Data with accuracy statements in the meta data were second, and data without accuracy statements was the third priority for acceptance. The data was then combined with and edge matched to previously accepted data and adjusted to conform to the topology rules.</procdesc>

Any overlaps with existing Oregon data in PLSS_SECTION_POLY were resolved by deleting features from PLSS_SECTION_POLY.

Edge-match of data along the Oregon and Washington border was completed by Erin Frostad using GCDB points.</procdesc>

        <attrdef>Section is the first level subdivision of a township.  A normal rectangular section is numbered from 01-36.  Special surveys do not conform to the PLSS grid, but they are valid as part of the PLSS.  Special Surveys include Tracts, Mineral Surveys, and Donation Land Claims.  Unsurveyed areas are a representation of the PLSS based on a projection from existent survey data into unsurveyed areas.  The polygons are depicted as "PB" and a number, the first instance being 37.</attrdef>
