Major Ramsey County Water (waterlite)


This page last updated:
Metadata created using Minnesota Geographic Metadata Guidelines


Metadata Summary

Originator Ramsey County
Abstract
This data set contains select open water areas including, creeks, lakes, rivers.  This data set also contains islands within open water areas.  The vector information was created from aerial photography observation and interpretation using stereo processing techniques.  Vector line work was originally plotted from 2009 photography.  All graphical lines contain a character based layer name that identifies the different mapping features.  The flight height for the aerial photography utilized in this project is approximately 5000 feet.  The mapping scale for aerial photography utilized in this project is 1 inch equals 833 feet.

Section 2 Data Quality Information Top of full metadata Top of page
Attribute Accuracy
Feature attributes are identified using analytical and softcopy photogrammetric compilation methods.  Automated GIS processes supplement the photo identified feature attributing with the numerical parameters
Logical Consistency
Graphical elements are topologically clean as the majority of the linework is intended to create closed boundaries or polygons.  The linework represents physical features existing at the time of data collection.  The aerotriangulation solutions, model set ups, existing DEM reference models, and the ground control assured the integrity of a spatial relationships among the planimetric, drainage, and road features collected.
Completeness
All features in this type of photogrammetrically identifiable within the Ramsey County coverage are included.
Horizontal Positional Accuracy
This data meets or exceeds the National Map Accuracy Standard (NMAS) - 1/30 of 1 inch at map scale.  Tested 2.5 feet horizontal accuracy at 95% confidence level
Vertical Positional Accuracy
Not applicable as it pertains to a two-dimensional ArcInfo Coverage.  However, during feature compilation the vertical accuracy meets NMAS - 1/600 of flight height above mean terrain.
Lineage
The planimetric feature collection was performed on soft-copy stereo plotters by experienced technicians.  Feature edits were conducted within the ArcInfo environment to correct for all errors.
