  Description
    Abstract:
      This data includes known archeologial resource
      locations represented as polygon features in Knife
      River Indian villages National Historic Site.  The
      data was digitized from mylar copies of 7.5' USGS
      topographic quadrangles.
    Purpose:
      To delineate the location of
      archeological sites for cultural resources
      management

  Access_Constraints: See National Register Bulletin 29.  Legal Authroity for restricting information is provided by Section 304 of the NHPA and Section 9(a) of ARPA
  Use_Constraints:  Information should be restricted if its publication is likely to endanger the resource, worsen existing damage, endanger the resources setting or cause desecration of a site used in traditional cultural practices.  This does not apply to this KNRI dataset.  This data is already in the public domain.

DATA_QUALITY_INFORMATION

  Attribute_Accuracy
    Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
      Accuracy of area
      and length attributes is unknown.  Archeological
      sites that were located before the 1970s are
      locationally "questionable", unless they were
      relocated sometime after the 1970s and properly
      documented
  Logical_Consistency_Report:
      ArchInfo v. 7 -
      Arcedit, UNIX, used for digitizing and editing
      digitized data.  Data consists of polygons (labeled)
  Completeness_Report:
      The data set contains
      all the known archeological polygon features that
      have been plotted on archeological base maps
      by the Midwest Archeological Center
  Positional_Accuracy
    Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy
      Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
        Horizontal
        positional accuracy is tested by visual comparison
        of hard copy check plots to the source materials
        and verifying the location of the data on-screen
        relative to other data layers in the same geographic
        area.  Data has not be ground truthed.
