Metadata created using Minnesota Geographic Metadata Guidelines


Metadata Summary

Originator Mid-Minnesota Development Commission
Abstract The Drainage Ditch Watershed layer contains polygon features that display the surface drainage ditch and the subsurface drainage ditch system (tile) watersheds of Meeker County. The layer was created using the most accurate information from scanned georeferenced ditch maps provided by the county and georeferenced to the 2003 Farm Service Agency (FSA) Aerial Photography. The watershed for the drainage ditch was produced by Viewers and included on the Engineer plans for that drainage ditch.

The watershed for the drainage ditch was produced by Viewers and included on the Engineer plans for that drainage ditch.
Purpose The data set was developed to have a digital inventory of the drainage ditch watersheds for those ditches which have information available for watersheds in Meeker County.

Section 2 Data Quality Information Top of full metadata Top of page
Attribute Accuracy Visual comparison of the ditch watershed locations were verified against the originial ditch maps produced by the engineers for the corresponding ditch construction project.
Logical Consistency All polygons are closed and lines intersect where intended. Data is topologically correct where intended.
Completeness All ditch names shown on ditch maps was added. Watersheds were completed for those ditches that had watershed information contained in the original ditch map document.
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Surface data is as accurate as the 2003 FSA Aerial Photography. Polygons were digitzed based on the determined watershed boundaries from paper ditch maps and digitizing the features.
Lineage The Drainage Ditch Watershed layer contains polygon features that display the surface drainage ditch and the subsurface drainage ditch system (tile) watersheds of Meeker County. The layer was created from the most accurate information from scanned georeferenced ditch maps provided by the county and using the 2003 Farm Service Agency (FSA) Aerial Photography for georeferencing. The watershed for the drainage ditch was produced by Viewers and included on the Engineer plans for that drainage ditch. The source information comes from aerial photos, original ditch maps, and a larger ditch map showing all ditches located in Meeker County. The scanned ditch maps, after scanned in, were georeferenced to their location. Visual location of the watesheds were digitized off the scanned ditch maps.

Section 5 Entity and Attribute Information Top of full metadata Top of page
Entity and Attribute Overview The Meeker Drainage Ditch watershed features described in this database are represented as attributed polygons and label points. The following information is included for each polygon:

Ditch Number [DITCH_NO]
Ditch Code [DITCH_CODE]
IFS Account Number [IFS_ACCT]
Ditch Jurisdiction [DITCH_JURI]
Ditch Type [DITCH_TYPE]
County [COUNTY]
Area [GIS_ACRES]

The Ditch Number, Ditch Code, and IFS Account Numbers are based on Meeker County's codes for their tax system. Ditch Jurisdiction is whether it is a County or Judicial Ditch. The area is calculated in acres and calculated within the GIS system.
