Description:
Abstract:
The State Routes of Washington are segmented according to the nominal roadside landscape classification determined by the Roadside Design Office of the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to provide an easily displayed representation of the classifications of roadside landscape on a medium- to small-scale state-wide map.
Supplemental_Information:
Roadside Landscape Classification segments are no less than 0.9 miles in length except where State Routes: pass through small towns; pass through semiurban areas directly adjacent to urban areas; or intersect, if a shorter length is necessary to blend the route corridors together.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report: none
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The data was derived from a topologically clean linear reference system. It is assumed that linear network topology is intact, ie, all nodes represent network intersections or network endpoints, and crossing lines represent separated-grade crossings of routes.
Completeness_Report:
The data represent the entire state highway system except for ramps and collector/distributor lanes. Classifications have been applied to all routes in the data set.

The linear reference system for State Routes in Washington State.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Regions and Olympia Service Center located the boundaries of roadside classification segments by milepost for each WSDOT State Route. An Excel spreadsheet listing roadside classification by milepost was converted to a dbf file with Accumulated Route Mileage (ARM). This was used to generate an ArcView event theme based on the Washington State Highways linear reference system. The event theme was converted to a shape file.

Process_Description:
Accumulated Route Mileage values were recalculated to reflect the 2004 State Highway Log. Records where the beginning ARM equaled the ending ARM were deleted, as were records which tracked coincident route locations. Records adjoining coincident route locations were edited to reflect the beginning/ending coincident route locations as of 2004.
