Abstract:
This data set contains point and line features of topographic information for the Town of Erin (T9N R18E). The topographic features consist of geodetic and geographic reference elements, hydrographic elements, planimetric elements, and hypsometric elements. An additional set of features called map sheet elements are included to allow preparation of hard-copy cartographic products. The data set covers The Town of Erin in its entirety. The digital map files were prepared at one-inch-equals-200-feet scale. The digital map files are in MicroStation DGN format.
Purpose:
This data set was collected to provide topographic information for use in planning and other programs in Washington County and for regional planning activities in Southeastern Wisconsin.

Calendar_Date: 1995
Currentness_Reference:
Ground condition of aerial photography used to prepare the topographic mapping
Status:
Progress: Complete
Maintenance_and_Update_Frequency:
None planned. Newer toographic information is available for this area from the Washington County 2007 LiDAR Project. The Planimetric features from this project, however, remain the most current available.

A countywide topographic mapping update schedule has not been established. The timing of a potential project to update countywide elevation data is unknown.

Access_Constraints:
There are no legal prerequisites for accessing this data set. Potential users should contact the Washington Planning and Parks Department - GIS Division.
Use_Constraints:
This data set was prepared from large-scale aerial photography, current as of 1995. The topographic maps may not reflect current conditions. Site investigation may be necessary to determine current ground conditions and location of topographic or planimetric features.

This data is for information use only and is not intended to be a substitute for a land or engineering survey.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The features in this data set were collected from aerial photography utilizing stereo-photogrammetric methods. The digital map files in the data set were reviewed to insure that all features are correctly represented and properly symbolized. The files were also inspected to insure that all features are complete and correctly organized in the files.
Completeness_Report:
This data set was compiled by a photogrammetric engineering firm under subcontract to the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission. To the best knowledge of Washington County and the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, this data set includes all of the intended features acquired from the aerial photography.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Digital topographic mapping was prepared to meet National Map Accuracy Standards for one-inch-equals-200-feet scale mapping. Therefore, ninety percent or more of all well-defined planimetric features in the mapping for these areas are within 6.6 feet of their true position.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The digital topographic mapping in this data set contains contour features captured at two-feet intervals. Therefore, ninety percent or more of all elevational features in the digital topographic map files are within 1.0 feet of their true vertical position.

Entity_and_Attribute_Information:
Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
This data set consists of a set of digital map files. The features included in the files are generally organized as geodetic and geographic reference elements, hydrographic elements, planimetric elements, hypsometric elements, and map sheet elements. Each one-inch-equals-200-feet-scale file covers one U. S. Public Land Survey section. The vector features contained in the files include points and lines. The digital map files are in MicroStation DGN format. The files are two-dimensional and do not contain explicit z values. All files consist of graphic map features only and do not contain attributes at this time. The data is presented in two file series. The graphic primitive series (.GRP file extension) includes no cartographic formatting. The symbolized series (.SYM file extension) includes cartographic formatting more appropriate for hard-copy map production. Both the .GRP and .SYM files are Microstation design files. Some software may require the extension be changed to .dgn for the files to be interpreted correctly.

This data also includes a set of digital terrain model files. The features include mass points and break lines. Each tile covers one U. S. Public Land Survey Section and were used to generate the hypsometric features contained in the files described above. The digital map files are in MicroStation DGN format. The files are three dimensional. All files consist of graphic map features only and do not contain attributes at this time.
