Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
No tests have been conducted on these attributes to verify their accuracy.
Logical_Consistency_Report: No consistency checks were performed.
Completeness_Report:
Points no longer used are retired. Only sampling locations are represented, sanitary lines and closure boundaries have been deleted.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Coordinates were collected using a marine navigational Global Positioning System with an accuracy of about 30 to 100 feet. When vessels return to a sampling location they are sometimes unable to sample from the exact station coordinates because of local conditions or hazards. This adds further ambiguity to the sampling location. It is recommended that when using these points in a spatial analysis that an additional 60 feet be added to the accuracy estimation.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report: N/A
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Sampling locations are collected with a GPS data collector in the field. Data is then uploaded to a PC in the office and converted to a Shapefile.
