Native_Data_Set_Environment:
Microsoft Windows 2000 Version 5.0 (Build 2195) Service Pack 3; ESRI ArcCatalog 8.3.0.800

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
No duplicate features are present. The shapefile is converted to SDC (Smart Data Compression) format in ArcSDE®. This verifies and validates the geometry.
Completeness_Report:
After processing, the data set is checked for drawing display and number of records and file sizes compared with source materials.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The geospatial part of this data set was calculated from latitude/longitude coordinates. The positional accuracy is unknown.
Note that some locations are the center point of broad volcanic fields, and that even at individual volcanoes the coordinates given do not necessarily match the eruption site. Tens of kilometers may separate eruptive centers of a single volcano, particularly in large caldera complexes and rift settings.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The data were copied from the Smithsonian Institution, Global Volcanism Program Web site into a text file. West longitude and south latitude values were converted to negative values. The file was loaded into ArcView GIS and a shapefile was created. Using North America Shaded Relief map for reference, the location of Mount Rainier was adjusted slightly.

Source_Produced_Citation_Abbreviation: National Atlas
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following steps were performed by ESRI: Downloaded the ArcView GIS Shapefile compressed file, volcanx020.tar.gz, from <http://www.nationalatlas.gov/atlasftp.html> and extracted it. Removed features not in the United States or its territories. Added STATE, KNOWN_ERUP and MAX_VEI attributes from ESRI Data & Maps 2002 U.S. National Atlas Volcanoes. For the four records that did not match, attribute STATE was coded from the LOCATION attribute and attributes ELEVATION, KNOWN_ERUP, and MAX_VEI were coded, -99999, -999, and -999 respectively. Rearranged and removed attributes to match the last release. Created ArcGIS® layer file (.lyr), projection file (.prj), and spatial indices. Converted the data set to SDC.

Attribute_Label: NUMBER
Attribute_Definition:
The volcano number, based on a system developed by the Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World (CAVW), in the format ####-##-. The first two numerals identify region, the next two identify subregion, and the last two or three (after the hyphen) identify individual volcanoes in that subregion. When there are three final characters and the last character is "=", the number is the same as that found in the CAVW; where the last character is "-", the number is not found in the CAVW because the region was not numbered in the CAVW or has been renumbered for this data set; where the last character is a number, the volcano is in an area included in the CAVW but the number is a new one that does not appear in the CAVW.
