Data Quality Information:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report:
Approximate horizontal accuracy is 130 meters, assuming source data meets National Map Accuracy Standards.

Lineage:
Source information:
Source scale denominator: 250,000
Type of source media: paper
Source contribution:
Pheasant habitat was delineated on USGS 1:250,000 scale topographic maps by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks wildlife biologists.

Process step:
Digitized polygons delineated (by FWP biologists) on USGS 1:250,000 scale topographic maps. Polygons and habitat quality attributes were then reviewed by FWP biologists and their edits were incorporated into the final layer.
Process date: 04/2000
