Section 1: Overview

Originator:Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)

Title: DNR Hydrography - Muskie Lakes

Abstract: This layer shows Minnesota's muskie lakes. Criteria for identification includes lakes having an active muskie management plan, lake plan, muskie long-range plan, and/or where muskie is cited as a primary or secondary species.

Muskie lakes are classified as Native, Introduced, and Introduced-Hybrid waters on this layer. Note that muskie rivers (e.g., Mississippi, Big Fork, Little Fork, St. Croix, Kettle, Snake, Prairie, Rainy - International Falls to Baudette) are not included in this layer.

Purpose: To support planning, fisheries management, research and other resource-related activities with impact on muskie lakes. Also supports recreational identification of these resources.

Section 2: Data Quality

Attribute Accuracy:

Logical Consistency:

Completeness: Complete

Horizontal Positional Accuracy: Polygons have been improved by on-screen digitizing over DOQ and FSA imagery.

Vertical Positional Accuracy: N/A

Lineage: The lake polygons are derived from the Open Water feature class of the DNR Hydrography SDE Dataset.
See Associated Data Sets above.
