Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
No formal attribute accuracy assessment performed.

 

Logical_Consistency_Report:
Data has been checked for topological consistency. There are no dangling arcs, unlabeled polygons, or other topological errors.

 

Completeness_Report: complete

 

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Precise to latitude/longitude coordinates (decimal degrees) with three decimal places (e.g. -104.000 and 45.000). Accuracy depends on precision of coordinates, since these quadrangles are generated from lat/long corners.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Derived from computer-generated 1:24,000 quad corner tic information. Latitude/longitude coordinates for the corners of each quadrangle were generated by 7.5 minute increments.

Entity_and_Attribute_Information:
Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
This dataset contains three attributes: USGS_QD_ID, QUAD_NAME and STATEPLANE. The USGS_QD_ID is an U.S. Geological Survey identifier including the quadrangle’s latitude, longitude with a alphnumeric quad id, e.g. 45106-A4. STATEPLANE identifies which zone (eastern, central, west-central or west) that the quadrangle falls within, by the stateplane zone id (5801,5826,5851,or 5876).
