Abstract:
Various linear geographic features pertaining to Montana's State Parks. Feautes were created using various digital compilation and digitizing techniques from both digital and paper map sources. Although the spatial location of features can be considered relativley reliable, this information should not be used in the context of legal description and/or property ownership.
Purpose:
Reference information for the production of graphically-designed kiosk maps for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) in 2006.

Data Quality Information:
Attribute accuracy report:
Attribute accuracy is based on information provided on hard-copy paper maps during three-phase digitizing process. All feature attributes included on paper maps are included.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: none

Vertical positional accuracy report: none


Lineage:

Process step:
Digitized data from hard-copy paper maps using heads up and/or onscreen method. Features were typically located by visual observation of location from paper map and added to the feature class. Digitizing process occurred in three review stages, with the third and final review resulting in the placement of most features. This process was used for all linear, point and polygon features displayed on resulting Adobe Illustrator kiosk map layouts.
Process date: 2006
Process step:
Added Hell Creek trails from GPS track file provided by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
Process date: 03/18/2008
