Description:
Abstract:
QUADS24_POLY: This theme depicts the 1:24,000 quadrangles for Oregon and Washington as defined in North American Datum 1927 (NAD27). These quads show the approximate extent of and align with the NAD27 corner ticks as displayed on USGS Topoquads.
Purpose:
Resource Management Planning
Supplemental_Information:
BLM (Bureau of Land Management), USGS (United States Geological Survey), GNIS (Geographical Names Information System), NGNDB (National Geographic Names Database) As described in the process steps these data were created on a regular grid of latitude/longitude to depict the 1:24,000 quadrangles covering Oregon and Washington and the surrounding areas as defined in North American Datum 1927 (NAD27). Due to the fact the dataset was originally created in NAD27 the values of coordinates defining the corners of the quads will only be those of the definition in the original datum. Once data is projected to a different datum the values will be correctly modified mathematically to reflect the change to the new projection. These quads show the approximate extent of the USGS topographic quadrangles. Since this data is constructed from corner points with straight lines connecting the corners, it does not take into account the curve between corner points introduced by the use of the UTM projection used to produce the topoquad maps. Thus this dataset is only a depiction of the extent of the topoquad. The corners of each of these quadrangles should align with the NAD27 ticks displayed on USGS topoquads in any projection used.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The Ohio codes were generated based on the latitude/longitude of the SE corner of the polygon, while the alternative Ohio codes were calculated from the original, moving the first two characters to the end of the string. The common names were attributed by relating a GNIS database to the Ohio codes. The alternative common names were attributed by relating a USGS database to the Ohio codes, using only those names that did not match the original common names. The Q100 Ohio codes were generated based on the latitude/longitude of the SE corner of the 100K quad that the 7.5-minute quad fell in. The results were visually checked for accuracy.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
This theme was created by generating the lines at a .125 degree interval. There are no node errors or open polygons. This theme was built with polygon topology. The original defined datum is NAD27.
Completeness_Report:
This theme covers all lands in Oregon and Washington as well as parts of California, Nevada, Idaho, British Columbia, Alberta and the Pacific Ocean.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The source coverage was generated in Arc/Info using a computer program that created the polygons at 7.5-minute intervals of latitude and longitude. Another computer program used the latitude/longitude of the SE corner of the polygons to calculate their Ohio codes. The Ohio codes were then translated to alternate Ohio codes by moving the first two characters in the string to the end of the string. The GNIS NGNDB was related to the Ohio codes to populate the common names field. GNIS NGNDB was compared to a USGS file, and where quad names disagreed, the name from the USGS file populated the alternate name field. The Q100 Ohio code field was populated from the Ohio code of the 7.5-minute quad in the SE corner of each 100K quad.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
There are two attributes and descriptions, for the most part identical, of the Ohio code of a quad. The second attribute (ALT_OHIOCODE) is in the format provided by USGS. Translation to the format used in the first attribute (OHIOCODE) was required for use in many database programs (e.g. Informix, Oracle) because often, when dealing with a character field, the database program will not accept a numeral in the first space.
