Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Lake names agree with those accepted by the Washington Board on Geographic Names.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The data were successfully processed as polygons with the Arc/Info "BUILD" command.
Completeness_Report:
Major lakes of Washington State are depicted as polygons. The lakes included are a subjective selection of water bodies interior to the state that the originator finds useful for general cartographic work. Major river reservoirs on the Columbia and Snake Rivers, and Lake Washington are excluded.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The Intergraph design file was converted to an Arc/Info coverage using Arc command "IGDSARC." The resulting coverage was transformed to geographic coordinates with Arc commands "PROJECTDEFINE" and "PROJECT." Polygon topology was defined with Arc command "BUILD." The data set was saved as a shape file in ArcView 3.0a, and lake name attributes were added to the shape file attribute table.
