Attribute_Accuracy:
Quantitative_Attribute_Accuracy_Assessment:
Attribute_Accuracy_Value: 100
Attribute_Accuracy_Explanation:
Full outer joins were completed against lookup values for features.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Permissable attribute values were checked using lookup values in ArcInfo Tables.
Completeness_Report:
Coverage is complete as possible until review is possible from forest hydrologists. Some fields are not populated due to the fact that this coverage was generated by adding 3 forest coverages together and reconcillation of all fields data has not occured on all forests by forest hydrologists.

Process_Description:
Coverage was derived by appending 3 forests coverages together after making the 3 forest coverages identical structurally. Attribute data was moved into appropriate fields. PLS and watershed information was populated by doing identity operation on appropriate coverages. Lat and Long values were generated by reprojection of data and then relating data from reprojected coverage back to original coverage.
