Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Lake Bathymetry is a line feature-based layer that includes bathymetric (water depth) information for selected reservoirs, lakes, ponds and coves in Connecticut. The layer is based on information collected by the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection over a period of time using a variety of different techniques and equipment including manual depth soundings, use of an electronic depth sounder, use of a GPS receiver to locate the boat, and digitizing previously published bathymetry maps. Attribute information is comprised of codes to depict water depth, waterbody indentification, collection method, and to cartographically symbolize features on a map. Data is compiled at a variety of scales and resolutions, depending on the collection method used for a particular waterbody. This data is not updated, however bathymetry information for addtional waterbodies may become available and included in this layer as new information is collected. The Bathymetry layer includes bathymetry for the following Connecticut lakes, ponds and coves: Alexander Lake, Amos Lake, Anderson Pond, Aspinook Pond, Avery Pond, Babcock Pond, Ball Pond, Bantam Lake, Bashan Lake, Batterson Park Pond, Beach Pond, Beachdale Pond, Beseck Lake, Bigelow Pond, Billings Lake, Black Pond, Bolton Lake Lower, Bolton Lake Middle, Bolton Lake Upper, Bolton Notch Pond, Breakneck Pond, Burr Pond, Candlewood Lake, Cedar Lake, Chamberlain Lake, Chapman Pond, Colebrook River Reservoir, Congamond Lakes, Coventry Lake, Cresent Pond, Crow Point Cove, Crystal Lake, Dodge Pond, Dog Pond, Dooley Pond, Eagleville Lake, East Twin Lake, Frash Pond, Gardner Lake, Glasgo Pond, Gorton Pond, Great Hollow Pond, Green Falls Reservoir, Halls Pond, Hamburg Cove, Hampton Reservoir, Hatch Pond, Higganum Reservoir, Highland Lake, Holbrook Pond, Hopeville Pond, Horse Pond, Howells Pond, Jurovaty Pond, Keach Pond, Keeney Cove, Killingly Pond, Lake Hayward, Lake Housatonic, Lake Kenosia, Lake Lillinonah, Lake Of Isles, Lake Saltonstall, Lake Wintergreen, Lake Zoar, Lantern Hill Pond, Leonard Pond, Little Pond, Long Pond, Maltby Lake #1, Maltby Lake #2, Maltby Lake #3, Mamanasco Lake, Mansfield Hollow Reservoir, Mashapaug Lake, McDonough Lake, Messerschmidt Pond, Millers Pond, Mohawk Pond, Mono Pond, Moodus Reservoir Lower, Moodus Reservoir Upper, Moosup Pond, Morey Pond, Mount Tom Pond, Mudge Pond, North Farms Reservoir, Norwich Pond, Pachaug Pond, Park Pond, Pataconk Reservoir, Pataganset Lake, Pickerel Lake, Pine Acres Lake, Powers Lake, Quaddick Reservoir Lower, Quaddick Reservoir Middle, Quaddick Reservoir Upper (Stump Pond), Quinebaug Lake, Quonnipaug Lake, Rainbow Reservoir, Red Cedar Lake, Rogers Lake, Roseland Lake, Salmon Cove, Saugatuck Reservoir, Shenipsit Lake, Silver Lake, South Spectacle Lake, Squantz Pond, Stillwater Pond, Tyler Lake, Uncas Lake, Waramaug Lake, West Branch Reservoir, West Hill Pond, West Side Pond, West Thompson Reservoir, West Twin Lake, Wethersfield Cove, Winchester Lake, Wonoscoponuc Lake, Wood Creek Pond, Wrights Cove, and Wyassup Lake. The 2011 Edition added the following lakes: Allen Brook Pond, Ashland Pond, Barber Pond, Butterworth Dam, Day Pond, Gay City Pond, Lost Pond, Schreeder Pond, Twin Lakes North, Twin Lakes South, Williams Pond.
Purpose:
This dataset displays the bathymetry (water depth) of selected lakes in Connecticut.  Use this layer with hydrography or other waterbody datalayers to display water depth.
Dataset credit:
Bruce Hunter and Tom Nosal of the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection developed the techniques and procedures for collecting, processing and preparing bathymetry information collected in the field for use and interpretation. Over a period of time, they systematically created detailed datasets of water depth information using a variety of different techniques. For example, they prepared point data sets of water depth information designed for use with mapping software that generates depth contours. Bill Gerrish, also of the State of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection processed and edited these detailed datasets of water depth information in order to generate water depth contours for individual lakes and assembled this information into a single, statewide layer.

+ Data Quality and Accuracy Information
General
Information about the fidelity of relationships, data quality and accuracy tests, omissions, selection criteria, generalization, and definitions used to derive the data.
Logical consistency report:
Polygon features conform to the following topological rules. Polygons are single part. There are no duplicate polygons. Polygons do not self overlap. Polygons do not overlap other polygons. Polygons are bound by lines. Line features conform to the following topological rules. Lines are single part. There are no duplicate lines. Lines do not self overlap. Lines do not overlap other lines. Lines intersect only at nodes, and nodes anchor the ends of all lines. Lines do not overshoot or undershoot other lines they are supposed to meet and intersect. The tests of logical consistency were performed by the State of Connecticut using ESRI ArcInfo software to maintain feature topology in ArcInfo coverage format. The data is topologically clean. The ArcInfo Clean function was repeatedly used following edits to verify topology and enforce a minimum distance between vertices of 47.927 feet (fuzzy tolerance) and a minimum allowed overshoot length of 0 feet (dangle length). 
Completeness report:
The completeness of the data reflects the availability of digital information at the time the layer was published. 
Attribute Accuracy
Accuracy of the identification of data entities, features and assignment of attribute values.
Attribute accuracy report:
The Lake Bathymetry layer retains the feature types and information identified by the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection. This information was obtained from the previously published bathymetry maps and data. All attributes have valid values. Values are within defined domains. The WB_NO and DEPTH_FT attribute values were assigned to line features through a combination of automated and manual processes. The accuracy test for the WB_NO and DEPTH_FT attributes was conducted by inspecting paper check plots or interactive displays of the data on a computer graphic system by symbolizing, labeling and selecting depth contours by WB_NO and DEPTH_FT values. The value for the DEPTH_FT attribute assigned with open water (polygon) features is based on the depth of the bounding water contour (line) features. The estimated DEPTH_FT value for a water polygon is half the difference between the shallowest and deepest contour. For example, a water polygon bound by a shoreline feature (zero depth) and depth contour of 4 feet is assigned a DEPTH_FT value of 2 feet. DEPTH_FT attribute values for polygon features were manually assigned. AV_LEGEND is a broad classifications of Lake Bathymetry line features . The WBNAME, WBTOWN, LAKE_NO, BAY_NO, METHOD_COD, and DATADATE were not manually entered. These additional fields were populated by joining both the line and polygon feature attribute tables to a lookup data table with WB_NO as the relate key field. This lookup table contained this information for each waterbody. The METHOD value was populated by joining to a lookup table with METHOD_COD as a relate key. The ACREAGE (area in acres) field was automatically calculated for each polygon feature based on computer generated feature area in square feet. 
Positional Accuracy
Accuracy of the positional aspects of the data.
Horizontal accuracy report:
The horizontal positional accuracy of this data is unknown.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
Metadata profiles defining additonal information:

FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.2
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
