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 has been conducted to verify the interpretation is correct, however field site data serve to provide control on interpretation. Site locations are measured with handheld GPS units, whose error is estimated at better than +/- 10 m on the ground. RMS error during georeferencing of the scanned image is less than +/- 10 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 intially through air photo interpretation and were verified in selected locations during field mapping. No fewer than 100 field sites were visited during the course of mapping. Result: unknown Report: Conceptual consistency: Measure description: Data are topologically clean, as checked in Arc/Info (workstation v. 8.3). Visual checks have been made of the attributes by the authoring geologist, and plotted versions of the data have been checked by a third party. Result: unknown Lineage: Lineage: Statement: Data were compiled intially through air photo interpretation and were verified in selected locations during field mapping. No fewer than 100 field sites were visited during the course of mapping. Process step: Process step: Description: Process includes
                  
- air photo interpretation and transfer to mylar - scan mylar - georeference scanned image (6 to 8 control points) - heads-up digitize the georeferenced image - clean coverage and build topology - label spatial features - quality check, proofreading Date and time: 2004-01-01T00:00:00
