Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Local Drainage Basin Direction is point data used to create directional arrow symbology that depicts the general direction of surface water flow within individual local drainage basins. Particular emphasis is given to directional arrows near the location of local drainage basin outlets. These and similar features along stretches of local drainage basin main stem basins and in coastal basins that drain into Long Island Sound are intended to aid in visualizing the network of local drainage basins in Connecticut. Point features are classified into three types - Outlet Direction, Main Stem Direction and Coastal Direction - and include an attribute that defines arrow direction. Data is compiled at 1:24,000 scale and should only be used for cartographic purposes on maps that also depict Local Drainage Basin Boundaries.  Appropriate scale range for viewing is 1:24,000 to 1:80,000.  
Purpose:
Local Drainage Basin Direction is a cartographic data product. These point feature must be used with Local Drainage Basin polygon and line feature data. They must not be depicted on maps as simple point symbols without symbolizing them with arrows that take on the appropriate direction. Use the DIRECTION_ANGLE and DIRECTION_TYPE attributes to properly classify the features and orient the directional arrow symbols on a map. It is meaningless to use these data without also including local basin boundaries on a map.

These data do not represent the exact location of basin outlets or stream confluences. Their position is largely based on the need to locate an arrow symbol near each local basin outlet such that it does not interfere or conflict with the placement of other information typically included on a basin map such as highways, local roads, bridges, waterbodies, political boundaries and geographic names. For this reason, some features may be farther away from the basin outlet than others. This information is not intended to accurately represent the hydrologic connectivity of surface water and were not automatically derived from or based on a hydrologic network such as the U.S. Geological Survey National Hydrography Dataset.

Number of records: 3077
Description:
Basin Outlet location and direction point features show general locations and flow directions of all Local Drainage Basins in the State of Connecticut.  However, some points do not represent locations, and simply show flow direction within local basins.  All points are strictly cartographic and locations of all points were chosen to not conflict with other base map features and your ability to read the map.  These point features must be symbolized with arrow-like symbols that depict direction based on the numeric values stored in the field named direction angle.

+ 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:
Point features conform to the following topological rules. Points are single part. There are no duplicate points. Points do not overlap. 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 geodatabase format. No automated procedures or tests were performed to guarantee desired topology other than visual inspection.
Completeness report:
The data is complete.  There is at least one local basin direction feature for each local drainage basin.
Attribute Accuracy
Accuracy of the identification of data entities, features and assignment of attribute values.
Attribute accuracy report:
The Local Drainage Basin Direction layer retains the feature types and information identified by the State of Connecticut, Department of Environmental Protection and obtained from the Major, Regional, Subregional, and Local Drainage Basin Databases.  All attributes have valid values.  Attribute values were either entered manually, and express only general information that doesn't need high accuracy, or were populated through a spatial join; and in that case only as accurate as the attribute data in the table it was joined to.
Positional Accuracy
Accuracy of the positional aspects of the data.
Horizontal accuracy report:
The horizontal accuracy of these data meets the intended use.  These data are strictly cartographic.  Point feature locations are near and not exactly at the corresponding outlet locations.

Process Step 1
Process description:
Feature digitizing and attribution (heads up digitizing method) - Using ESRI ArcGIS software, features appearing on the source map were manually digitized on the screen (heads-up digitizing) at a display scale of 1:24,000 using CT DEP's Base Map group layer file, and Lidar 2000 contours displayed in the background for reference. This Base Map group layer included 1:24,000 scale roads, geographic names, and features, waterbodies, and political boundaries.  These were used mainly to avoid any conflicting features as these points will be included in maps that contain this information.  Individual features were digitized based on information from the Local Drainage Basin database. Features were assigned 'angle' and 'type' attribute values based on information shown in the Basin database.

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.
