        Description:
          Abstract:
            Hydrographic features for Wyoming at 1:100,000-scale, including perennial
            and intermittent designations and Strahler stream order attributes for
            streams. Does not include man-made ditches, canals and aqueducts. The data
            was originally produced by USGS, a Digital Line Graph (DLG) product, though
            this product was enhanced (edgematched, some linework and attributes corrected,
            stream order attribute added).

            A subset of this dataset is also available for distribution, including only
            major streams (order 4 to 7) and major lakes and reservoirs. In order to
            reduce the size of this subset, the line segments were dissolved to remove
            unncessary segments.

          Purpose:
            The purpose of this data layer was to provide a base layer of water features
            at a statewide level for riparian/aquatic species distribution modeling for
            the Wyoming Gap Analysis project. However the data may also be used for a
            variety of other natural resources management/biological studies at the
            appropriate scale.

        Native_Data_Set_Environment:
          The data was created in and is stored in Arc/Info 7.0.4 software for
          Unix operating system. This dataset has both line (stream network)
          and polygon (lakes/reservoirs) topology. The dataset is served from
          the SDVC clearinghouse both in an entire statewide dataset and also
          tiled by 1:100,000 quadrangles, in Arc Export (e00) format.

      Data_Quality_Information:
        Attribute_Accuracy:
          Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
            This product is directly derived from the USGS DLGs, which according to the
            National Mapping Program do not currently carry quantified accuracy statements.
            However, procedures used by the NMP to validate the attribute accuracy
            involve computerized checking of attribute codes against a table of
            valid codes to endure that each attribute in a file is valid for the
            category. A manual process involving proof plots is used to verify
            correct application of codes.

            The additional attribute added by Wyoming Gap Analysis, stream order,
            automatic generation by a ordering program. The coding was checked
            by displaying each order as a different color on screen, and special
            attention was paid to braided streams or other complicated areas of
            stream connection. The Strahler order attributes are correct only so far
            as the connectivity and completeness of the hydrographic network
            is represented due to generalizations at the 1:100,000-scale. Obviously,
            there will be differentiation in order at the larger 1:24,000-scale
            because of the more accurate representations of streams at that scale.

            Attributes were also checked by visual color displays for intermittent
            and perennial attributes, as well as natural vs. man-made (all ditches,
            canals and aqueducts were removed). One section of Wyoming should be
            noted in particular for incorrect attributing which was corrected by
            Wyoming Gap Analysis: streams in Weston county, particularly the Lance Creek
            1:100,000 quadrangle, were incorrectly labeled as perennial when,
            according to USGS 1:24,000-scale topographic maps, they were actually
            intermittent streams. Some linear features were corrected where they were
            man-made ditches/canals but incorrectly labeled as natural streams
            (primarily in the Pinedale quadrangle).

            Approximately 12% of the 1,792 1:24,000-scale topographic maps for Wyoming
            were used to verify the 1:100,000-scale DLGS, however these quads were not
            statistically selected for verification but rather were selected to
            check areas that had already been identified as "problem areas".
           
          Quantitative_Attribute_Accuracy_Assessment:
            Attribute_Accuracy_Value: unknown
            Attribute_Accuracy_Explanation:  none
           
        Logical_Consistency_Report:
          There are no unclosed polygons, intersections without nodes, or polygons
          without labels or with more than one label.
          Arc/Info's topological checking program CLEAN was used to correct intersections
          without nodes, identify unclosed polygons and remove duplicate lines with
          the same beginning and ending nodes. Checks were not made for possible errors
          such as sliver polygons or duplicate lines missed by CLEAN, though if any
          such errors exist they are likely to be minor due to the topological tests
          performed on the raw DLG data by the USGS NMP.

        Completeness_Report:
          Some attributes may have a zero value because of the hierarchical nature
          of the DLG MAJOR and MINOR attributes (see the USGS National Mapping
          Program Digital Line Graphs Data Users Guide 2 for more details). The
          attribute added by Wyoming Gap Analysis, stream order, is complete for
          all linework (Arc/Info arc attribute table), line features being labeled
          as zero corresponding to water features which are not ordered, eg. lakes,
          ponds and reservoirs.

          It should be noted that Wyoming Gap Analysis identified the two Yellowstone
          National Park quadrangles in the northwestern corner of the state to be
          mapped in less detail than surrounding quadrangles, (not just in the DLG
          product, but also on the original USGS 1:100,000-scale paper topological
          maps). Apparently different decision rules were applied by the NMP in
          translating hydrography from the 1:24,000-scale down to the 1:100,000-scale
          for this region of the state, and the data for these two quads should be
          considered as incomplete in comparison to the level of detail mapped for
          adjacent areas.
         
        Positional_Accuracy:
          Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy: +/- 300 meters
            Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
              The USGS NMP identifies these procedures used to qualify the positional
              accuracy of their DLG products: the data are either manually
              digitized using equipment with a resolution of 0.001 inch and an
              absolute accuracy of from 0.003 to 0.005 inch, or are scanned on
              an automatic device with a resolution of 30 points per millimeter,
              or 0.0013 inch.  The positional accuracy of the data and complete-
              ness of the file are checked by visually comparing proof plots
              with the original stable-base source material. These proof plots
              are generated using automated drafting machines with a resolution
              of 0.001 inch and an absolute accuracy of from 0.003 to 0.005 inch.
      
              Wyoming Gap Analysis converted raw DLG data into Arc/Info format
              with a 2 meter fuzzy tolerance (minimum distance between coordinates).
              Wyoming Gap Analysis also performed manual edge-matching along boundaries
              of 1:100,000-scale quadrangles of the source DLG data in Arc/Info,
              any positional offsets less than or equal to 200 meters being snapped
              together by splitting the distance between the two arcs. Other editing
              performed by Wyoming Gap Analysis which may or may not have an effect
              on the positional accuracy included adding or moving arc vertices and
              adding or lengthening arcs to join existing features in the edge-matching
              process. Grain tolerance used in adding/editing arc vertices was < 50m.

              Approximately 12% of the 1,792 1:24,000-scale topographic maps for Wyoming
              were used to verify the 1:100,000-scale DLGS, however these quads were not
              statistically selected for verification but rather were selected to
              check areas that had already been identified as "problem areas", areas where
              its was not possible to determine how to connect streams along quadrangle
              edges by referring to the 1:100,000-scale maps alone.

            Process_Description:
              Raw DLG data (optional format) for Wyoming was converted to Arc/Info format
              1:62,000-scale quads with a 2 meter coordinate resolution (fuzzy tolerance).
              These quadrangles were then tiled together into 1:100,000-scale quadrangles.
              During the process of tiling the 1:100,000-scale quadrangles into a statewide
              coverage, checking was done for proper feature alignment along the edges of
              the quads (edgematching). Streams or other hydrographic features with a
              positional offset (edge mismatch) of less than or equal to 200 m were
              snapped together by splitting the difference between them. In certain areas,
              it was necessary to refer to USGS 1:24,000-scale topographic maps to
              correctly determine the method of joining arcs. Editing changes included
              snapping endpoints of arcs together, adding or moving arc vertices, and
              adding new arcs to join or lengthen existing features. All arc features
              representing canals, ditches, or other man-made features were removed.
              Label errors which were identified by visual comparisons with paper maps
              were corrected.

          Process_step:
            Process_description:
              Following edgematching and other corrections to the original DLG data,
              all natural linear features were ordered, by major drainage (the state
              wide data was divided into 7 different drainages: North Platte, Belle
              Fourche, Crow, Wind River/Bighorn, Snake, Bear, Yellowstone) using the
              Strahler ordering method. The direction of flow of natural hydrographic
              features was adjusted using the Arc/Info TRACE command to best approximate
              the direction of flow in the drainage and its basins. A Strahler-ordering
              fortran program developed by USGS hydrologist, K. Lanfear, was applied to
              assign stream orders based on directional flow within the drainage. In
              cases of wide rivers represented by shorelines (instead of a stream
              centerline), braided rivers or stream networks interconnected circularly,
              the ordering had to rectified by interactive checking and editing. Wetlands,
              lakes, ponds and terminal reservoirs are not ordered. Streams flowing into
              Wyoming from other states (North Platte and Bear River drainages) were
              ordered based on visual inspection of source streams on 1:100,000-scale
              USGS maps of adjacent states (Colorado and Utah). Following the ordering
              and checking process, the individual drainages were appended back into
              a statewide coverage.

      Entity_and_Attribute_Information:
        Overview_Description:
          Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
            There are 9 attributes associated with each arc hydrographic feature, and
            8 for each polygon (both a .AAT and .PAT exist for this coverage). The
            first 8 attributes, MAJOR and MINOR codes 1-4, are part of the standard
            hierarchical coding scheme of the DLGs. The MAJOR attributes 1 and 2 are
            coded as 50 or 0, 50 representing a hydrographic feature digitized by the
            USGS, and 0 representing a hydrographic feature digitized by Wyoming Gap
            Analysis project.

            The MINOR attributes 1,2,3 have a numeric code for each feature, for example
            412 is the code for stream and 200 is the code for shoreline. Most features
            only have associated codes at the highest level, MINOR1. (MINOR 2 and 3
            identify other codes; for instance a stream may also be labeled as intermittent
            in MINOR2 and labeled as a boundary for a wetland in MINOR3).
           
            The most common MINOR2 attribute is 610, identifying  intermittent features.

            The last two attributes, ORDER and RIPARIAN, were added by Wyoming Gap. ORDER identifies
            the Strahler order for the stream, 1-7. Polygon labels do not have an ORDER
            attribute. Arcs identified as shorelines, wetland  boundaries or terminal
            reservoir boundaries are labeled as ORDER = 0. A look-up table for displaying
            order in ArcPlot is included with the dataset, HYDRODLG.ORDER. The RIPARIAN attribute
            was added to identify intermittent streams which might possibly have riparian vegetation
            associated with them; this attribute was added only for the purposes of riparian modeling
            in Gap Analysis and has no other functional use within the dataset.

            Definitions of Minor1,2 and 3 codes are listed here and are also included
            in two INFO tables accompanying the Arc/Info coverage: HYDRODLG.LINE and
            HYDRODLG.POLY. These files can also serve as display look-up tables for
            Arcplot, since they include symbol colors for the COLOR lineset.

            For ArcView users, these INFO files are also available as dBASE files,
            hy_line.dbf, hy_poly.dbf and hy_order.dbf
