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: Accuracy of the surface feature interpretations is estimated 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 was done to verify the interpretation; however, field site data provided control on interpretation. Site locations were measured with handheld GPS units, the error of which is estimated at better than +/- 10 m on the ground. The root mean square error during georeferencing of the scanned airphoto images was less than +/- 35 m. 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 through airphoto interpretation and were verified in selected locations during field mapping. Due to access constraints, the number of field sites was limited. Result: unknown Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: We derived the linear surficial features from field work and aerial photograph interpretation. Features were adjusted so they aligned with like features in adjacent study areas (edge matched). Where directionality was present, we digitized the lines in the paleoflow direction. Line features intersect only where intended. The authoring geologist made visual checks of the attributes, and a third party checked plotted versions of the data. Result: unknown Lineage: Lineage: Statement: Data were compiled initially through airphoto interpretation and were verified in selected locations during field mapping. Due to access constraints, the number of field sites was limited. Process step: Process step: Description: Our processes included 1. interpreting the airphoto; 2. scanning each 1:60 000 airphoto as a gray-scale, 1200 dpi TIFF; 3. georeferencing images using 1:20 000 scale provincial digital base data (i.e., hydrography and roads) for control; 4. digitizing line features from each image individually and reconciling edge discrepancies; 5. labelling spatial features; 6. checking quality of digital file; and 7. proofreading text.
