Description:
Abstract:
The Digital Geologic Units (Surficial Map) of Yellowstone National Park and Vicinity, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho consists of surficial geologic units mapped as area (polygon) features. The data were completed as a component of the Geologic Resources Evaluation (GRE) program, a National Park Service (NPS) Inventory and Monitoring (I&M) funded program that is administered by the NPS Geologic Resources Division (GRD). The data were captured, grouped and attributed as per the NPS GRE Geology-GIS Geodatabase Data Model v. 1.4. (available at: <http://science.nature.nps.gov/im/inventory/geology/GeologyGISDataModel.cfm>). The data layer is available as a feature class in a 9.1 personal geodatabase (yell_geology.mdb). Attributed geologic contact lines that define the geologic unit polygons are present within the Geologic Contacts (YELLGLGA) data layer. The Geologic Units (YELLGLG) GIS data layer is also available as a coverage export (.E00) file (YELLGLG.E00), and as a shapefile (.SHP) file (YELLGLG.SHP). Each GIS data format has an ArcGIS 9.1 layer (.LYR) file (YELLGLG_GDB.LYR (geodatabase feature class), YELLGLG_COV.LYR (coverage), YELLGLG_SHP.LYR (shapefile)) with map symbology that is included with the GIS data. See the Distribution Information section for additional information on data acquisition. The GIS data projection is NAD83, UTM Zone 12N. That data is within the area of interest of Yellowstone National Park.
Purpose:
The data are intended to assist NPS personnel in the protection and management of Yellowstone National Park.
Supplemental_Information:
This dataset is just one component of the Digital Surficial Geologic Map of Yellowstone National Park and Vicinity, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. The data layers (feature classes) that comprise the Digital Surficial Geologic Map of Yellowstone National Park and Vicinity, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho include: YELLAMA (Alteration and Metamorphic Areas), YELLAMAA (Alteration and Metamorphic Area Boundaries), YELLATD (Geologic Attitude and Observation Points), YELLCN1 (Paleoshorelines and Stream-Terraces), YELLFLT (Faults), YELLGAF (Glacial Area Features), YELLGAFA (Glacial Area Feature Boundaries), YELLGFL (Glacial Feature Lines), YELLGLG (Surficial Geologic Units), YELLGLGA (Surficial Geologic Contacts), YELLGML (Geologic Measurement Localities), YELLGOL (Geologic Observation Point Localities), YELLGPF (Geologic Point Features), YELLJLN (Linear Joints), YELLMAF (Mine Area Features), YELLMAFA (Mine Area Feature Boundaries), YELLMIN (Mine Point Features), YELLSUR (Surficial Units), YELLSURA (Surficial Contacts), YELLSYM (Fault Symbology), YELLVPF (Volcanic Point Features), YELLGFP (Glacial Feature Points) and YELLGLF (Escarpments and Flood Channels). There are three additional ancillary map components, the Geologic Unit Information (YELLGLG1) Table, the Source Map Information (YELLMAP) Table and the Map Help File (yell_surficial_geology.hlp). Refer to the NPS GRE Geology-GIS Geodatabase Data Model v. 1.4 (available at: <http://science.nature.nps.gov/im/inventory/geology/GeologyGISDataModel.cfm>) for detailed data layer (feature class) and table specifications including attribute field parameters, definitions and domains, and implemented topology rules and relationship classes.

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Feature attribution was derived from and checked with the source map(s). Attribution was checked (QCd) for errors. Users of this data are advised to FULLY and CAREFULLY READ the "DISTRIBUTION LIABILITY" section of this metadata before using the data.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
GIS data in 9.1 personal geodatabase (.MDB), coverage export (.E00) file and shapefile (.SHP) file formats.
Completeness_Report: Data is considered complete to the extent of the source map(s).
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Data, digitized from a georeferenced source map .TIF image(s) (300dpi), is assumed to meet National Map Accuracy Standards. The PRECISION of the Export (.E00) file and Shapefile (.SHP) file is DOUBLE. The maximum root mean square (RMS) horizontal accuracy of the georeferenced image as measured in ArcMap is 12.0 meters. The PRECISION of the Export (.E00) file and Shapefile (.SHP) file is DOUBLE. Coordinate tics on the georeferenced (registered and rectified) source map image(s) were checked against control points that had the exact specified coordinates of the tic. The direct distance between the image tic and its control point were measured. All measured distances were less than 50% of the required distance to meet National Map Accuracy Standards (1/50th of an inch for maps at 1:20,000 scale and smaller). Features were checked (QCd) after digitizing for positional accuracy errors using the georeferenced source map image.

Features were digitized from a scanned (.TIF format at 300dpi) and georeferenced (registered and rectified) version of the source map(s). The georeferenced source map image(s), as well as a paper copy of the source map(s), were used to attribute features, as per the NPS GRE Geology-GIS Geodatabase Data Model v. 1.4, and to check the positional and attribute accuracy of the data.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Features were captured and attributed from a georeferenced source map .TIF image(s), scanned at 300dpi, georeferenced in NAD83 UTM projection, in a digitizing geodatabase with topological rules checking for intersection and dangle errors. These features were then parsed into a feature class within a new geodatabase and further attributed per the NPS GRE Geology-GIS Geodatabase Data Model v. 1.4. Topology rules were imposed to check for and correct topology errors. Topology rules maintain spatial coincidence between features and related features in another feature class, as well as maintain defined spatial relationships within a single feature class. Relationship classes were also used to ensure attribution consistency. For more details about imposed topological and relationship rules, see the NPS GRE Geology-GIS Geodatabase Data Model v. 1.4 (available at: <http://science.nature.nps.gov/>).
Features were exported from the geodatabase to coverage and shapefile (.SHP) formats.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Refer to the NPS GRE Geology-GIS Geodatabase Data Model v. 1.4 (available at: <http://science.nature.nps.gov/im/inventory/geology/GeologyGISDataModel.cfm>) for detailed data layer (feature class) and table attribute field parameters, definitions and domains, and implemented relationship classes. A Detailed Description section is not present (above) as standard GIS fields dependent on GIS format (e.g. OBJECTID, SHAPE, FNODE_) are not consistent throughout the GRE deliverable GIS formats (personal geodatabase, coverage and shapefile).
