Data Quality Information:
Attribute accuracy report: Attribute values were checked against original base map.

Logical consistency report: No consistency check was performed
Completeness report:
Water lines are complete for the City of Red Lodge except for the Diamond C Links and the recently annexed Spires subdivsions.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: The horizontal accuracy of this layer is unknown.


Process step:
Water lines were delivered in AutoCAD format from HKM Engineering, Inc. The CAD layer was georeferenced using a 2 point similarity transformation. The CAD layer was converted to a staging goedatabase using the Import to CAD tool. Using the spatial adjustment tool in ArcGIS, offsets were corrected with new GPS control (e.g., surface features of the municipal water system such as hydrants and water line valves). CAD layers were seperated into individual features classes and feature class tables were constructed. Were necessary, line geometry was repair to ensure topological intregity.
