Data Quality Information:
Attribute accuracy report:
Biologist positions can change frequently; personnel changes are kept up-to date when new information is made public. Boundaries change infrequently.

Lineage:
Source information:
Source scale denominator: 24,000 and 100,000
Source contribution: Linework pulled from existing data sources.

Process step:
Biologist responsibility areas were created by digitizing polygons based on other geographic or administrative boundaries such as counties or 8-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC). Boundaries of responsibility areas rarely change but biologist information can change yearly.
Process step: Thompson Falls area biologist updated to Kenneth Breidinger.
