Section 1: Overview

Originator:Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)

Title: Ecological Sections of Minnesota

Abstract: This coverage provides information for all three levels of the Ecological Classification System (ECS): Provinces, Sections, and Subsections. The boundaries of the polygons of this coverage were derived from Land Type Association (LTA) delineations that were compiled from a visual/interpretive process using Topography, Wetlands, Surficial Geology, Soils, Landsat Imagery and Climatic conditions.

Purpose: This dataset can be used for a variety of planning activities and education.

Time Period of Content Date: 1999

Currentness Reference: The ECS polygons were delineated during part of the process of identifying Land Type Associations in 1997-1998 and are a refinement of the original ECS

Progress: Complete

Maintenance and Update Frequency: As needed

Spatial Extent of Data: Statewide-Minnesota

Bounding Coordinates: -96.833072

Place Keywords: Minnesota

Theme Keywords: Ecological Classification System (ECS), Section, Subsection, Province, geoscientificInformation

Access Constraints: None

Use Constraints: Use of the data are contrained only by the DNR GIS Data License Agreement

Associated Data Sets:

Section 2: Data Quality

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. Region feature classes were created for the three levels of ECS classes, Province, Section and Subsection.

Completeness: All ECS 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.
