Attribute Accuracy   
Logical Consistency  Data are topologically correct using ArcInfo 7.1.1 
Completeness  Complete
Horizontal Positional Accuracy  unknown 
Vertical Positional Accuracy  not applicable 
Lineage  Seismic soundings were taken by DNR Waters Geophysics Program staff. The readings and their UTM coordinates were put into DBF format and opened as an 'event theme' in Arcview. The event theme was converted to a shapefile. The ARC command 'shape2arc' converted this shapefile into a point coverage.
