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 mathematically generated using the ARC/INFO® GRID™ extension. In this manner, the locations were computed. The positional accuracy is limited only by the resolution of the data set, which is less than a meter.
