Metadata created using Minnesota Geographic Metadata Guidelines


Metadata Summary

Originator Ramsey County
Abstract
Ramsey County contour data set is a linear data set created from a November 2001, Waggoner Engineering,  LiDAR airborne survey. The data set  resides in a Enterprise Geodatabase format as polylines. Polylines depict two foot contour lines generated from the LiDAR bare earth point data.  This data set covers Ramsey County except the City of Saint Paul who maintain their own DEM data.

Originator Ramsey County
Title Suburban Ramsey County Contours
Abstract
Ramsey County contour data set is a linear data set created from a November 2001, Waggoner Engineering,  LiDAR airborne survey. The data set  resides in a Enterprise Geodatabase format as polylines. Polylines depict two foot contour lines generated from the LiDAR bare earth point data.  This data set covers Ramsey County except the City of Saint Paul who maintain their own DEM data.
Purpose
Contour lines support many functions including a county wide model for preliminary drainage, street, road and site development plans.

Section 2 Data Quality Information Top of full metadata Top of page
Attribute Accuracy
The elevation attribute accuracy is based on a November, 2001 LIDAR airborne survey. The point data collected in this manner was tested to meet VMAS mapping accuracy at the 90% confidence level of 1.06 feet when compared against the final delivered DEM.
Logical Consistency
Generally linework depicted here was not originally intended to create closed boundaries or polygons.
Completeness
Entire Ramsey County coverage except the City of Saint Paul
Horizontal Positional Accuracy
The vendor for this project (Waggoner Engineering, Inc.) states in their flight planning documentation that the horizontal accuracy of each point is 1.5 feet.
Vertical Positional Accuracy
The vertical accuracy is based on the independent collection of 199 ground surveyed points distributed throughout the project. The comparison for the surveyed determined elevation at each coordinate point and the DEM elevation for the same coordinate, the VMAS mapping accuracy at a 90% confidence level is 1.06 feet. The NSSDA mapping accuracy at a 95% confidence level is 1.20 feet.
