Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Original features were derived from CFF (Cartographic Feature File) data.  Recently, features were verified using PAMAP image data as a background.  Edits were made using ArcMap software
Completeness_Report:
Data completeness reflects the content of the original CFF's and a complete overall digitizing effort to add/delete missing data and to verify/revise all existing lines.
