Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  dataset




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Measure description
The SubsurfaceRights_poly was built for polygon, arc, and node topology.





Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description
This theme covers the state of Montana and partial coverage of western North and South Dakota.





Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description
Attributes were compared with the source material for accuracy. Discrepancies were cross checked with other sources to determine and confirm the correct attribute.





Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension horizontal


Measure description
Source Data derived from the BLM addresses positional accuracy by referring to the error ellipses from the Geographic coordinate data base (GCDB). Other Source data derived from other Federal, State, and county sources as a rule did not address positional accuracy. Accuracy was then determined from metadata statements if available.





Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 2009-03-09 00:00:00
Indeterminate date inapplicable
Description
Data was assembled using information from the Montana State Office and from various federal, state, and county agencies. When data from multiple sources covered the same area, the data was then assessed for best quality content and accuracy. Priorities were determined for acceptance. Data with positional accuracy statements were first choice (GCDB data). Data with accuracy statements in the meta data were second, and data without accuracy statements was the third priority for acceptance. The data was then combined with and edge matched to previously accepted data and adjusted to conform to the topology rules.
