Description:
Abstract:
This feature class depicts all water drainages within the Coronado National Forest. From this data set, those drainages named on the Primary Base Series (PBS) Maps and designated by hydrologists on the Coronado National Forest are routed and stored as a Route Network. A route feature stores the spatial locations (geography) of the streams. These feature classes have an (M) value or measure on their vertices. This dataset is part of the USFS Southwestern Region Core Data Project. This project is designed to generate and maintain 15 vertically integrated resource data layers which are standardized across the Southwestern Region.
Purpose:
The purpose of this feature class is to depict a comprehensive set of significant drainages on this National Forest. The feature class will be used to provide drainage information for any necessary analysis.
Supplemental_Information:
This edition has been created for forest analysis purposes by the Supervisors Office staff. Attribute tables contain items documented in the 'Region 3 GIS Data Dictionary'. This can be found at <http://fsweb.r3.fs.fed.us/eng/gis/standards.html>.

Use_Constraints:
Comparison with other data sets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting from changes in photointerpretation, rounding of decimal coordinates during conversion, and mapping conventions over time. Any hardcopies utilizing these data sets shall clearly indicate their source. If the user has modified the data in any way, they are obligated to describe the types of modifications they have performed on the hardcopy map. The user specifically agrees not to misrepresent these data sets, nor to imply that changes made were approved by the USFS.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Accuracy and completeness was checked by manually comparing hardcopy plots, on-screen review, and reporting method with the source materials. Attributes for STRM_NAME were populated based on the "Specifications for TVA Data Automation Contract." An automated application, QCView, was also used to verify consistent data structure and valid attribution for fields based on the "Specifications for TVA Data Automation Contract".

Cartographic Feature Files (CFFs) are digital files containing a vector representation of the point and line features shown on a Forest Service Primary Base Series (PBS) map. CFF data are collected by digitizing PBS maps and revised using correction guide information provided by field units. GSTC began producing Vintage 11 CFFs in 1996.

Process_Description:
NOTE: THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION PERTAINS TO THE COVERAGE DATA MODEL General: Vintage 11 CFF digital data was the basis to create this coverage. In order to provide a complete network, stream centerlines through water features were created and are a part of this coverage. Gaps in connectivity gaps were fixed based on the rule of 1/2" or less, or from information provided by the Forest. Arcs were oriented for downstream directionality. Source and method was populated for all arcs. The STRM_NAME was identified by the Forest, using the PBS name, and populated on the respective arcs. The data set was checked for dangle errors. Errors were corrected and topology built for arc. A route subclass was created based on the item STRM_NAME and the route was oriented upstream. Only streams designated by the forest hydrologist were routed. Technical: The CFFs will be the basis for the stream data. In some instances, the Forests may have additional attribute information to supplement this layer. A connected network is to be built based on the stream and waterbody data from the V11 CFF. The first step is to extract the waterbody theme id arcs into one coverage (using the standard list of applicable CFFs from the Data Specifications). Sand areas (CFF 316) and wide washes (CFF 317) will be used for centerlining, but are not meant to be included in the waterbody coverage). Extract the streams arcs into another coverage. Working in the extracted stream coverage, with the waterbody coverage as a backcover, create the network by centerlining the waterbodies, coding CFF as 470 and SOURCE_CODE as 20 and METHOD as 08, connecting the stream segments as applicable (see Rules for centerlining below). Plots are then prepared by quad, color-coded by CFF and sent to the Forest for review and edit. The Forest will verify the CFF is correct, annotate on the plots where it is to be changed, annotate any additional gaps in connectivity to be fixed, identify significant stream names and extents to be routed (see Rules for Stream names in the Data Specifications document), and show general direction of stream flow. These plots are then returned to TVA and TVA makes the edits (in an extracted coverage) based on the annotation from the Forest Service. These edits include editing or adding a CFF (in attribute CFF1-CFF10), fixing any gaps in connectivity, and populating the item STRM_NAME in the arcs within the named stream extent, and orienting the arcs in the downward flow direction, using the "flip" command as needed. Once all edits are complete, the original data is deleted from the master quad coverage and the new, edited data is put back into the master quad coverage. At this point the stream data is complete. When the output coverage is produced in the final processing phase, a "route" will be created ("createroute" based on item "STRM_NAME") for all named streams and an upward direction will be applied to those routes.
