Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 2; ESRI ArcCatalog 9.2.4.1420

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The shapefile is converted to SDC (Smart Data Compression) format using either ESRI SDC Data Development Kit Professional 2 (DDKP2) or tools in ArcGIS. The SDC data set is then loaded into ArcSDE® to verify and validate the geometry. The data set is created directly from a topologically correct ArcInfo® coverage.
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 extracted from the ArcWorld Supplement database. No detailed evaluation of the positional accuracy of the ArcWorld Supplement data has been made; knowledge of the source World Data Bank II (WDBII) data is insufficient to determine positional accuracy of data derived from the source.
