Data quality info:

Data quality: Scope: Scope: Hierarchy level: Scope code: dataset Report: Absolute external positional accuracy: Name of measure: Horizontal Positional Accuracy Measure description: Evaluation method description: We estimate the accuracy of the surface feature interpretations to be better than +/- 100 m on the ground, based on informed judgement of the effects of all combined map production errors. No formal accuracy check verified the interpretation; however, field site data provided control on interpretation. Site locations were measured with handheld GPS units, whose error is estimated at better than +/- 10 m on the ground. Result: Quantitative result: Value unit: Base unit: Identifier: Units system: xlink: http://www.bipm.org/en/si/ Value: Report: Completeness commission: Result: unknown Report: Completeness omission: Evaluation method description: Data were compiled initially for the whole study area through LiDAR interpretation and verified by direct field observations of about 50 field sites distributed across the map area. Result: unknown Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: Due to the availability of high quality LiDAR bare-earth digital elevation model data for NTS 84A/NE, it was possible to delineate polygons and lines that would otherwise be unobservable. Adjacent map areas have not been mapped using LiDAR; therefore, new feature boundaries have been identified in NTS 84A/NE that do not have a corresponding boundary in the adjacent study areas. Consequently, NTS 84A/NE is not fully edgematched with adjacent areas. Line features intersect only where intended. Result: unknown Lineage: Lineage: Statement: Data were compiled initially for the whole study area through LiDAR interpretation and verified by direct field observations of about 50 field sites distributed across the map area. Process step: Process step: Description: Our processes included - creating a mosaic and relief shading the LiDAR for available coverage of NTS 84A/NE; relief-shaded images were created from 8 azimuth directions to reduce directional bias and were reduced into a single image using principal component analysis; - creating a mosaic and histogram matching Landsat 7 scenes; bands 1-5 and 7 were used along with principal component analysis to highlight vegetation and landform features; - scanning and orthorectification of monochrome airphotos (1:60 000) using LiDAR as the digital elevation model base; these were interpreted as digital stereoscopic imagery - using Spot-5 satellite imagery to augment landforms for identification; - digitizing polygons and line features across the LiDAR image of NTS 84A/NE using ArcGIS; - labelling spatial features; - checking quality of digital file; and - proofreading text.
