Microsoft Windows 2000 Version 5.0 (Build 2195) ; ESRI ArcCatalog 8.1.0.570

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
No duplicate features are present. The shapefile 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.
