Moose, Moose Area, Hunting, Washington State, 2013-2014 Hunting Season


Summary

This feature class represents the Moose Areas and Hunts 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 232-28-273). Its purpose is to aid Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife staff and the general public to geospatially interpret the Moose Area and Hunt descriptions as presented in the Hunting pamphlet and the WAC.

Description

This polygon feature class represents Moose Areas and Hunts in Washington State for the 2013-14 Hunting Season. These boundaries are used to determine the areas where the Moose 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 Moose Areas and Hunts in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes precedence.

Legal constraints
Limitations of use
This data was compiled at a scale of 1:100,000. Data should only be used for general display, mapping, and planning purposes at scales of 1:100,000 or smaller. Extreme care was taken during compilation of these boundaries to ensure accuracy. However, Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) had to rely on outside sources of information when compiling these data, and therefore cannot accept any responsibility or liability for errors and/or omissions in the use of these data. WDFW provides no warranties to accompany this data. Refer to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' for more explicit and detailed information on Bighorn Sheep Unit boundary legal descriptions and hunting regulations.If any difference is found between the legal description for the Moose Area or Hunt in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes precedence.

Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  feature
Scope description
Attributes The attribute information was derived from Washington Administrative Code 232-28-273. Feature identification was accomplished by consulting WA Dept of Natural Resources 1:100,000 Planimetric Maps and digital Layers and Bing digital maps, US Geological Survey 1:100,000 and 1:24,000 topographic digtal maps, and the Delorme Washington Atlas and Gazetteer.
Features The feature class was designed to be accurate at a scale of 1:100,000 although many portions were taken from source data that was digitized to be accurate at 1:24,000.



Data quality report - Completeness omission
Dimension horizontal


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.




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Dimension horizontal


Measure description The polygons were created from the arcs of MU_Boundary. The linework described in the legal descriptions for Moose Areas and Hunts as presented in the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons & Regulations" were used as the basis to create MU_Boundary. MU_Boundary was used to create the polygons for MU_Legal.




Lineage 

Lineage statement
Based on the Moose Area and Moose Unit legal descriptions that in the Washington Administrative Code  (Section 232-28-273) which is published in the 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' pamphlet, linework for this feature  class was copied from GMU_Boundary, County24, TRANS_SV,WCHydro and WBHydro. Other boundaries were manually added where no linework existed. A digital reference base map.World_Topo_Map,  was used that had been created by ESRI and its associates and the Delorme Washington Atlas and Gazatteer was used to cross check the names of features and landmarks.
Process step
When the process occurred 2013-02-07 00:00:00
Description I created a label point feature class for all the Moose Areas\Hunts except Hangman, which overlays other hunts. Used the Feature to Polygon Arctool with MU_Boundary without the Hangman Moose Area and the label point feature class to create a temporary MU_Legal feature class. I created the Hangman Moose Area\Hunt separately and copied it into the MU_Legal feature class thus creating a discontiguous feature class.

Metadata Constraints 

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.
