Summary

This feature class represents the Mountain Goat Hunt Areas (MGU) in Washington State for the 2013-14 Hunting Season as defined by in the 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' pamphlet and the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) (Section 232-28-623). Its purpose is to aid Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife staff and the general public to geospatially interpret the Mountain Goat Hunt Area legal descriptions as presented in the Hunting pamphlet and the WAC.

Description

This polygon feature class represents Mountain Goat Hunt Areas in Washington State for the 2013-14 Hunting Season. These boundaries are used to determine the areas where the Mountain Goat hunts listed in the 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' pamphlet will be carried out.

Use limitations

The data set was created at a 1:100,000. Zooming in to scales finer then 1:100,000 may produce inconsistancies with the actual ground feature being represented. The feature class was created based on the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations" pamphlet. If any difference is found between the legal description for the Mountain Goat Hunt Area in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes precedence.

Supplemental information
There were changes in the Mountain Goat Hunt Areas (MGU) between the 2012-2013 hunting season and the 2013-2014 hunting season. MGU 4-7 Avalanche Gorge and MGU 4-6 Dillard Creek have hunts this year. The boundaries were changed for MGU 4-3 Chowder Ridge, MGU 4-7 Lincoln Peak , MGU 4-7 Avalanche Gorge,and MGU 4-6 Dillard Creek. MGU Goat Rocks 5-4/Tieton River 3-9 were combined into a joint unit.

Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  dataset




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Measure description The polygons were created from the arcs of MGU_Boundary. The linework described in the Legal Descriptions for Mountain Goat Hunt Areas as presented in the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons & Regulations" were used as the basis to create MGU_Boundary. MGU_Boundary was used to create the polygons for MGU_Legal.




Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description The initial scale of the base data as it was digitized or transferred was at a scale of 1:100,000 with roads and water features taken from 1:24,000 scaled layers. The selection and mapping of the boundaries is based on the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons & Regulations" pamphlet published by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.




Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 2013-03-11
Description I extensively updated the Metadata for the feature class.




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-01-22
Description Created a point label feature class called t_MGU13_CenterPts. Attributed the feature class for the 2013-2014 Hunting season data.




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-02-11
Description I copied the temporary MGU_Legal feature class to the holding area for finished Hunt units feature classes.




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-01-23
Description I used the Feature to Polygon Tool to create a temporary polygon file using t_MGU13_CenterPts and the temporary MGU_Boundaries files.




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-02-11
Description Used the Calculate Field tool to update the In_Effect_Desc to "April 1 2013 to March 31 2014"

Constraints
Limitations of use
The data set was created at a 1:100,000. Zooming in to scales finer then 1:100,000 may produce inconsistancies with the actual ground feature being represented. The feature class was created based on the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations" pamphlet. If any difference is found between the legal description for the Game Management Unit in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes precedence.
