  Native_Data_Set_Environment: Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 3; ESRI ArcCatalog 9.3.1.3500
Data_Quality_Information:
  Attribute_Accuracy:
    Attribute_Accuracy_Report: All attributes created during the creation process were verified by displaying the lines in both the database and the spatial coverage, but no formal tests were performed.
  Logical_Consistency_Report: These data are believed to be logically consistent, though no tests were performed. Line geometry is topologically clean.
  Completeness_Report: The boundary of the WSA is dependent on man-made features(roads), natural feautres(streams, ridgelines, elevation lines) and plss/aliquot part lines.
  Positional_Accuracy:
    Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
      Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: The data were created by delineating the boundary off a USGS 7.5 minute Topographic Map at 1:24000 scale. Therefore, the horizontal accuracy is assumed to be within National Map Accuracy Standards, with a horizontal accuracy of 45.6 feet at the 95% confidence level.
    Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
      Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report: The data were delineated off a USGS 7.5 minute Topographic Map at 1:24000 scale. Therefore, the vertical accuracy is assumed to be within National Map Accuracy Standards, with a vertical accuracy of 11.9 feet at the 95% confidence level.
