Abstract: This GIS dataset is a GIS version of Alberta Geological Survey Map 139, polygon features, as mapped at 1:250,000 scale. Digitizing was originally done by Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA). The data were supplied to Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) by PFRA in Arc/Info coverage format (map polygon features only). Data were subsequently checked and edited by AGS.

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: Map was scanned as 24-bit, 500 dpi resolution jpg and converted to 8-bitt tiff for performing registration procedure in ArcINFO. 10 to 30 control points were used for registration to achieve an average RMS error of 15 m. Visual examination of the registered digital data against the provincial 1:250,000-scale NTS map areas indicates the positional accuracy is +/- 90 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: The data have been thoroughly checked against the original map for fidelity and completeness. Result: unknown Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: Data are contiguous, topologically correct polygons as built and enforced using ArcInfo software. No effort was made to ensure continuity of features with existing data in adjacent study areas (i.e. edgematching). Result: unknown Lineage: Lineage: Statement: The data have been thoroughly checked against the original map for fidelity and completeness. Process step: Process step: Description: Polygons were digitized and attributed by PFRA based on a scanned image of Map 139. Date and time: 2003-01-01T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Polygons were compared to 1:250,000-scale paper map and when necessary, edited to match the original map. A look-up table was joined to the digital data based on the unit_num field to assign attributes to the other fields. Date and time: 2008-01-01T00:00:00
