Access_Constraints:
The USDI Bureau of Reclamation provides public domain spatial data without restrictions. Access to spatial data that are considered 1) works in-progress, 2) for internal use, or 3) confidential, sensitive, or private may be restricted. Access to such data may require a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to determine their disposition. For further information, contact the Geospatial Data Administrator at (208) 378-3515 or spatialdata@pn.usbr.gov.
Use_Constraints:
Users of spatial data obtained from the USDI Bureau of Reclamation are responsible for respecting any restrictions (i.e., use of private, sensitive, and confidential data restricted by policy or protected by law), even when not explicitly stated in the metadata. Use of spatial data determined to be public domain is unrestricted. Access to these spatial data does not imply they are public domain?users are responsible for determining the disposition of data. More information on the data disposition can be found under ?Security Classification? in the Identification section. In no event will the producers of Reclamation spatial data be liable for any damages arising from the use of, or the inability to use, these data. Contact the Geospatial Data Administrator at (208) 378-3515 or spatialdata@pn.usbr.gov with any questions about the status and disposition of these data.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Water surface values collected by USDI - Ephrata Field Office survey crew using the same equipment throughout the data gathering process. The only other attributes are a description field, the date collected, and an internal survey ID number. All were entered by the same survey personnel.
Logical_Consistency_Report: point topology exists
Completeness_Report: Complete for the relevant areas mentioned in the abstract.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Sites collected with the aid of a Trimble survey quality base station positioned on a high order survey marker or surveyed from a high order survey marker to allow radio communication.
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: 0.1
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
Data collection is sometimes in conditions of high variablility due to water conditions. Therefore, an accuracy description of less than the GPS units capability is used.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Sites collected with the aid of a Trimble survey quality base station positioned on a high order survey marker or surveyed from a high order survey marker to allow radio communication.
Quantitative_Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Value: 0.1
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
Data collection is sometimes in conditions of high variablility due to water conditions. Therefore, an accuracy description of less than the GPS units capability is used.
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Sites collected with the use of a survey quality Trimble GPS. The GPS is tied to a high order survey marker or it's location was surveyed from a high order survey marker in order to allow radio communication when collecting water surface elevations.
