Description:
Abstract:
This feature class depicts both perennial and intermittent water bodies as polygons on the Coronado National Forest. These features are areas that cover more than 50 feet on the ground.It 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 water bodies as polygons on the Coronado National Forest. The feature class will be used to provide water body information for any necessary analysis.

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 waterbod_name and LLID were populated based on the "Specifications for TVA Data Automation Contract". An automated application, QCView, was used to verify consistent data structure and valid attribution for fields based on the "Specification for TVA Data Automation Contract."

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Based on accuracy statements made for USGS topographic quadrangle maps. Targeted to National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSSDA). The National Map Accuracy Standards for 7.5 minute 1:24,000 quadrangles applies to this feature class, which state that a feature will be within approximately 40 feet of its true position.

Publication_Information:
Publication_Place: Salt Lake City, UT
Publisher: USDA Forest Service, Geospatial Service and Technology
Other_Citation_Details:
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 GEODATABASE MODEL General: Vintage 11 CFF digital data (and in some cases, Forest-provided digital data) was used to create this feature class. When Forest-provided data was used, the Forest provided the CFF code(s) for arcs. Source and method was populated for all arcs. The data set was checked for dangle and label errors. Any errors were corrected and topology built for polygon and arc. Polygon attributes were then populated, as appropriate. Technical: The CFFs will be the basis for the water body data. In some instances, the Forests may have additional information (spatial and/or attribute) to supplement this layer. Water body arcs are extracted from the master quad coverage to be used in stream centerlining. Sand areas (CFF 316) and wide washes (CFF 317) are used for centerlining, but are not meant to be included in the water body feature class. They will be coded as miscellaneous and will need to be selected by their CFF codes. The water body feature class is then plotted with the streams, by quad, color-coded by CFF for review by the Forest. The Forest should annotate any edits to the waterbody data on the plot. These edits would consist primarily of changes to the CFFs or correcting gaps in the connectivity of the polygons. At this point the water body data is complete. When the polygon output coverage is produced in the final processing phase, the polygons will have an item, WATERBOD_NAME which is populated based on the set of rules in the Data Specifications document.
