Section 2 Data Quality Information Top of full metadata Top of page
Attribute Accuracy Source table ECS_SECTPY2.DBF: Automated tests were conducted on all data to ensure that no invalid codes exist within the data set
Logical Consistency Data are topolocially correct using ARC/INFO 8.0.2. All polygons are closed and lines intersect where intended.
Completeness All ECS Section level boundaries in the state were re-located based on the definition of the Land Type Association boundaries, the fourth step in the ECS classification process. Significant differences exist between the older version of the ECS data.
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Source layer ecsltpy2: Unknown
Vertical Positional Accuracy Source layer ecsltpy2: Not Applicable
Lineage Attribute Lineage for source table ECS_SECTPY2.DBF: Once the LTA coverage was complete, each polygon was assigned a code based on standards in the National Hierarchical Framework of Ecological Units.
Source Scale Denominator Source layer ecsltpy2: 100000
