The erosion_susceptibility data layer is part of a Statewide GIS Analysis and Mapping of the Geologic Conditions Contributing to Eroding Terrace Escarpments, Project #03-02 of the Nonpoint Source Management Grant Program, funded under Section 319 (h) of the Federal Clean Water Act, and administered by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Connecticut Erosion Susceptibility a 1:24,000-scale, polygon feature-based layer that was developed as a predictive tool to show areas most susceptible to terrace escarpment type erosion. The layer compiled from the soils and quaternary geology data layers and was field tested during October-December, 2005. The Erosion Susceptilibity layer was developed as part of Project #03-02 Statewide GIS Analysis and Mapping of the Geologic Conditions Contributing to Eroding Terrace Escarpments. The layer does not represent eroding conditions at any one particular point in time, but rather base or general conditions which can be accounted for during planning or management strategies. The layer includes 4 types of areas susceptible to erosion, ranked 1 (most susceptible) through 4, and their descriptive attribute. Areas outside of the mapped polygons can be considered less susceptible to erosion.  Data is compiled at 1:24,000 scale. This data is not updated.
Purpose:
Connecticut Erosion Susceptibility is 1:24,000-scale, polygon feature-based layer that was developed as a predictive tool to show areas most susceptible to terrace escarpment type erosion. This map can be used in conjunction with the 1:24,000 scale Erosion_Sites layer and other documents developed for the Project #03-02: Statewide GIS Analysis and Mapping of the Geologic Conditions Contributing to Eroding Terrace Escarpments.  The objective of this project is to identify the geologic conditions that lead to eroding terrace escarpments throughout the state. This layer is part of an information package that can be used as a planning and management tool by state and municipal officials. Not intended for maps printed at map scales greater or more detailed than 1:24,000 scale (1 inch = 2,000 feet.)

+ Data Structure and Attribute Information
Overview
Summary of the information content of the data, including other references to complete descriptions of entity types, attributes, and attribute values for the data.
Entity and attribute overview:
Includes erosion_category which ranks area features on their susceptibility to erode due to geologic and soils  conditions. Information encoded about these features includes standard cartographic symbology classification schemes. Use the erosion_category to uniquely identify features. Use the AV_LEGEND attribute to symbolize features by type on a map. Use the IMS_LEGEND attribute to more generally symbolize the features by type.

+ 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.

Establishment of logical consistency was performed by the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection using ESRI ArcGIS software to manually create and control feature topology in SHAPEFILE format. No automated procedures or tests were performed to guarantee desired topology other than visual inspection.
Completeness report:
The completeness of the data reflects the chosen feature content of the data sources, which include the soils and quaternary geology data layers. The erosion_susceptibility layer is complete in the sense that it accurately reflects the contents of units chosen by the compiler to represent erodible given the source layers available at the time the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection created the layer. However, compared to current conditions, the erosion_susceptibility layer is incomplete in that there are minor data gap 'slivers' resulting from merges between the soils data layers for the northwestern portion of the state and the remainder of the state. This data is not updated.
Attribute Accuracy
Accuracy of the identification of data entities, features and assignment of attribute values.
Attribute accuracy report:
The erosion_susceptibility layer retains the feature types and information identified by the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection and obtained from the compiler. All attributes have valid values. Values are within defined domains. The accuracy test for the attribute values was conducted by comparing the erosion category information presented in the source data with  interactive displays of the data on a computer graphic system.  AV_LEGEND and IMS_LEGEND are broad classifications of erosion_category feature.  AV_LEGEND, and IMS_LEGEND were not manually entered. These additional fields were populated by calculating values equal to existing fields.  The description field was manually selected and populated.
Positional Accuracy
Accuracy of the positional aspects of the data.
Horizontal accuracy report:
The horizontal positional accuracy of this data complies with the United States National Map Accuracy Standards for 1:24,000 scale maps. According to this standard, not more than 10 percent of the locations tested are to be in error by more than 1/50 inch (40 feet) measured on the publication scale of a USGS 7.5 minute topographic quadrangle map. Features are derived from the union of other 1:24,000 scale (Quaternary geology) and 1:12,000 scale (soils) data layers.

Process Step 2
Process description:
The mergesoils and quaternary geology shapefiles were unioned. Attributes for terrace type geology and terrace type soils were added and populated based on soils and geologic characteristics that lead to their susceptibility to erosion. Attribute for draft erosion category (susceptibility) was added and calculated based on terrace soil and terrace geology rankings. Several iterations of 'ranking' took place based on examination of soils and geology relationships, field work, spatial joins with erosion_sites layer, and frequency tables.

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:
Profile: ESRI Metadata Profile
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.
