Title Original Ditch Maps Georeferenced - Renville County, Minnesota 2005
Abstract This theme is a scanned and rectified version of the County ditch maps for Renville County. The ditch maps visually show the general location of the surface ditches and subsurface ditches it has jurisdiction over as well as the viewsheds for certain ditches.
Purpose To provide the original, annotated Renville County Ditch map base to GIS users. The maps are not intended to be used for survey level measuring or reference. The maps are intended as more of a reference to the location of the ditches and the approximate locations of the tiles as shown on the map.

Attribute Accuracy Not specifically assessed.
Logical Consistency Not applicable
Completeness All ditches that were availabe to be scanned and rectified will be included.
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Unknown
Lineage The layer was created using the 2003 Farm Service Agency (FSA) Aerial Photography and the most accurate information from scanned ditch maps provided by the county. The scanned ditch maps, after scanned in, were georeferenced to their location. Referencing was based off of the visual locations of road intersections on the ditch maps and the location of road intersections on the 2003 FSA photos. A first order polynomial transformation was used to rectify the scanned map.
