Description:
Abstract: This line theme contains facilities and features for WMAs that are best represented as lines. WMAs are part of the Minnesota state recreation system created to protect wildlife habitat and provide wildlife-based recreation. Facilities and features are labeled based on a hierarchical classification system developed by the MN DNR, Section of Wildlife. Line features may represent any facility or feature that may need to show the length and direction of the feature. Several examples of features that may be represented as lines include roads and trails, fence, dike, ditch or stream, drainage tile, fire breaks, water control structures, gates, culverts, bridges, docks, and utility or rail road lines. Disclaimer: The only features in this theme are WMA user facilities such as parking lots, water accesses, trails and blinds. WMA management facilities such as water control structures, restricted roads, gates and habitat structures have been removed from this layer.
Purpose: Wildlife staff will use the WMA line facilities and features layer for managing wildlife habitat on WMAs; local mapping, contracting for maintenance and development projects, visitor use maps, management use maps, project planning and acquisition planning. The layer will also be used for public information about the public use facilities that can be found on WMAs. WMAs are included in the Recreation Compass on the DNR web site, which can be accessed by the public to print maps of public use facilities found on a particular WMA.

Data Quality Information:
Attribute Value Accuracy Information:
Attribute Accuracy Report: Source table FCIL_WMAPBLN3.DBF: The program project codes designating WMAs have been identified accurately. Facility or feature classification is verified by Area Wildlife Staff. Other attributes have varying levels of accuracy.
Logical Consistency Report: Data are topologically correct using ArcView 3.x. All lines intersect where intended.
Completeness Report: Facilities and features are nearly complete for most of the state. Facilities and features that are not complete and verified are not included in this database. Note: The only features in this theme are WMA user facilities such as parking lots, water accesses, trails and blinds. WMA management facilities such as water control structures, restricted roads, gates and habitat structures have been removed from this layer.

Process Step:
Process Description: Attribute Lineage for source table FCIL_WMAPBLN3.DBF: Area Wildlife staff used the MN DNR, Section of Wildlife, Facilities/Features Classification System to code facilities on the DOQ maps or by populating the attribute table in ArcView. Other facility attributes were filled out with the assistance of the "Wildlife Management Area/Geographic Information System Project Standards". For area offices that drew on maps, GIS specialists heads up digitized facilities or features and then populated the attribute table in ArcView.
