Description

2.1.1 
Attribute Accuracy 
text 
free text 
An
explanation of how accurately the entities have been identified or how
accurately values have been assigned in the data set. This can be the results
of quantitative analysis, steps taken to ensure accuracy during development,
or known deficiencies. 
2.2 
Logical Consistency 
text 
free text 
An
indication of topological problems such as overshoots, undershoots, unwanted
intersections, unclosed polygons, missing or duplicate labels, etc. 
2.3 
Completeness 
text 
free text 
Information
about omissions, selection criteria, generalization, definitions used,
and other rules used to derive the data set that may affect the completeness
of content of the data. 
2.4.1.1 
Horizontal Positional Accuracy 
text 
free text 
An
explanation of the accuracy of the horizontal positions (coordinates) of
spatial objects and a description of the tests or line of reasoning used
to arrive at the estimate. 
2.4.2.1 
Vertical Positional Accuracy 
text 
free text 
An
explanation of the accuracy of the vertical positions (coordinates) of
spatial objects and a description of the tests or line of reasoning used
to arrive at the estimate.

Information
about the sources of data used to construct the data set and steps used
to process the data. For each processing step provide, where possible,
the following: source data name, source data scale, source data date, description
of processing steps performed, scanning or digitizing specifications, hardware
& software used, processing tolerances, etc. 
2.5.1.2 
Source Scale Denominator 
integer 
. 
The
denominator of the representative fraction of source map(s). Please leave
out commas (e.g. 24000 not 24,000). Example: on a 1:24000 scale map, the
Source Scale Denominator is 24000; on a “100 scale” map (1 inch = 100 feet)
the Source Scale Denominator is 1200. If no source maps were used, enter
zero (e.g. GPS data). If multiple source map scales were used, enter the
Source Scale Denominator of the smallest scale map (largest denominator).
