Result: missing Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: Base hydrography update classifies features according to valid hydrography feature types, and each feature type contains attributes with valid value domains for feature type, feature code, and name. Result: missing Report: Completeness omission: Measure description: Feature typing and attribution is complete for all hydrography polygons in Alberta. Result: missing Lineage: Lineage: Statement: The Base Hydrography Update Index is sourced from the Hydrologic Unit Code 8 Watersheds of Alberta (HUC 8) boundaries representing the extent of the completed data. Process step: Process step: Description: Base Hydrography Update: this process creates the Single Line Network, HydroPolygons and HydroPoints. The update is based on existing Base Features Hydrography data, currently available orthophotos, currently available SPOT imagery and supplementary data such as Wet Areas Mapping and LiDAR. Proper naming of features in the Single Line Network, Hydropolygons and Hydropoints occur. Single line representation of the hydropolygons is added to the Single Line Network coverage as well.
