Data Quality and Accuracy Information
General
Information about the fidelity of relationships, data quality and accuracy tests, omissions, selection criteria, generalization, and definitions used to derive the data.
Logical consistency report:
The Ownership_Poly was built for polygon, arc, and node topology.
Completeness report:
This theme covers the states of Oregon and Washington.
Attribute Accuracy
Accuracy of the identification of data entities, features and assignment of attribute values.
Attribute accuracy report:
Attributes were compared with the source material for accuracy. Discrepancies were cross checked with other sources to determine and confirm the correct attribute.
Positional Accuracy
Accuracy of the positional aspects of the data.
Horizontal accuracy report:
Source Data derived from the BLM addresses positional accuracy by referring to the error ellipses from the Geographic coordinate data base (GCDB). Other Source data derived from other Federal, State, and county sources as a rule did not address positional accuracy. Accuracy was then determined from metadata statements if available.

Process step information
Process Step 1
Process description:
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 metadata 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.

Process Step 2
Process description:
Washington state data extracted from equivalent WA_LLI theme (WA_Ownership_poly). Any overlaps with existing Oregon data in OWNERSHIP_POLY were resolved by deleting features from OWNERSHIP_POLY. Field VERSION_NAME of the Washington data was filled with the value "InitialLoad". Fields matching OWNERSHIP_POLY were added to the Washington data and the values were translated from the corresponding Washington data fields using crosswalk tables approved by data steward Tim Keck. Washington data loaded into OWNERSHIP_POLY. Edge-match of data along the Oregon and Washington border was completed by Erin Frostad using GCDB points.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.

Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
