Data Quality Information:

Positional accuracy:
Horizontal positional accuracy:
Horizontal positional accuracy report:
This dataset is largely a legacy dataset with the coastlines being updated through heads-up digitizing based on 1998 EarthData half-foot pixel resolution orthophotography.  The County boundary is updated as verified section corners become available.
