Description:
Abstract:
National Wildlife Refuges are federal lands managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The primary source for boundary information is the USFWS Realty program (status maps, legal surveys). An effort by the USFWS Region 5 (northeast states - ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT, NY, PA, NJ, MD, DE, WV, VA) Realty Division, Cartography and Spatial Data Services Branch has resulted in digital refuge boundaries for all refuges in the Northeast at a scale of 1:24,000.
Purpose:
The intended application of the refuge boundary data is for use as a spatial reference with other data layers in GIS and mapping applications. It is specifically not intended to be used as a land survey or representation of land for conveyance or tax purposes. For survey data, please contact USFWS, Region 5, Realty Division, Surveys Branch.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Digital refuge boundaries are plotted with arc and polygon attributes, then compared to USFWS Realty status maps, survey documents, and collateral information for coding accuracy. Up to three levels of quality-control review are conducted (Cartography and Spatial Data Services Branch, Realty Management Branch, Refuge System Staff) with corrections being incorporated after each review until the dataset is deemed acceptable. See "Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 97-01, United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Lands Boundary Data (Last Revision: January 15, 1998)" at <http://www.fws.gov/stand/standards/pr_bndry.html>.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Polygons are closed and adjusted to the most accurate geographic features, usually on a USGS 7.5' topographic quad. Dangling arcs, undershoots, and overshoots have been removed.
Completeness_Report:
Boundaries were digitized for USFWS owned lands, lands where USFWS maintains a management interest, and areas approved for USFWS acquisition. Plots are generated and quality-control reviewed for omission and commission errors.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Digital refuge boundaries are verified against USGS 1:24,000-scale Digital Raster Graphics (DRGs) or 1:12,000-scale Digital Orthophoto Quarter Quads (DOQQs). Data are stored in ArcInfo double precision.

Process_Description:
Status maps were registered to geographic coordinates, boundaries were digitized and attributed January 24, 1996. Digital files were updated using survey and collateral data for newly acquired tracts, then stepped through 3 levels of quality-control review for spatial and attribute accuracy. Refuge boundary and tract lines were registered to USGS 1:24,000-scale DRGs: Poquoson East (1978), Hampton (1981). Complete process description can be found in "SOP 97-01, USFWS Lands Boundary Data (Last Revision: January 15, 1998)".

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Refuge boundaries define areas that are approved for acquisition into the National Wildlife Refuge System or are currently owned by USFWS. Arcs are coded with an item "boundary" with the type of boundary line; polygons are coded with an item "status" that describes their ownership status.
