Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The USGS DRG is produced with the intention of replicating as close as possible the original source map. Users of the DRG will note, however, that a certain amount of "noise" can be discerned when small areas are blown up or viewed under zoomed-in conditions. This noise is in the form of random specks or pixels of color and halos due to any number of factors, such as the quality of the source, the use of screens and patterns on the litho, and the unevenness of ink due to saturation and absorption. Discontinuities or breaks in linear features may also be present and are due to improper calibration or usage of the scanner, the condition of the source, and resampling. Descreening, quantizing, and noise filtering are methods used to reduce noise, which, besides creating a more aesthetically pleasing image, have the added benefit of reducing the size of the image file. Removal of lithographic screen patterns is preferred but not required.
Completeness_Report:
Image completeness is checked by visually inspecting a sampling of DRGs. Each selected DRG is examined for gaps (missing data) in the main body of the map, the map collar, the overedge areas, and any insets.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
A random sampling of DRGs is accuracy tested. The accuracy test is performed by comparing the positions of UTM grid intersections on the source graphic against the corresponding location on the digital image. A visual inspection determines whether those coordinates fall within the pixels that define a grid tick. DRGs duplicate the horzontal accuracy of its source.
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: 1
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
DRGs retain the horizontal accuracy of the source maps. Most USGS printed maps contain the National Map Accuracy Standards (NMAS) note in the collar area. The NMAS states that for maps on publication scales of 1:20,000 or smaller, no more than 10 percent of the points tested shall be in error by more than 1/50 inch measured on the publication scale. Test points must be "well-defined", that is, easily visible or recoverable on the ground. For DRGs this accuracy statement applies only to that area of the DRG that falls within the neatline of the source map (excluding inset areas). Overedge areas falling outside the transformation boundary area (the map neatline) can exhibit anomalies or discrepancies. These anomalies also will appear in the map inset areas and in the map collar. For maps without the NMAS note, the horizontal accuracy is unknown. However, the DRG will retain the accuracy of the source map.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Production of a DRG begins with the scanning of a paper 7.5-minute topographic map (map1) on a high-resolution scanner. Scanning resolutions range from 500-1,000 dpi with an output file of 160-300 Mb in size. Removal of screens (descreening) and color quantization to reduce the number of colors also takes place during the scanning phase.

The raw scan file is then transformed and georeferenced using UTM coordinates of the sixteen 2.5-minute grid ticks, which are obtained using the in-house produced program COORDAT and stored in a ground control file. Those sixteen 2.5-minute ticks are interactively visited and assigned their respective UTM coordinates. The USGS program XSHAPES4 then performs a piecewise linear rubber sheet transformation.

An output resolution of 2.4 meters (8.2 feet) is chosen to resample the file to 250 dpi. The image file is converted to a TIFF 6.0 image and further reduced by converting the file to a run length encoded PackBits compression (type 32773).

The color palette of the compressed DRG is then standardized by replacing the original RGB values assigned during the scanning process with standard RGB value combinations using the in-house produced TIFFREMAP program.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following Digital Raster Graphics (UTM - NAD27 - Collars Intact, 1:250,000) were downloaded from LABINS: C24080A1, C25080A1, and C26080A1. Each DRG was cropped to remove as much of the collar as possible without removing any of the topographic map. Pixels in the remaining collar region around each image was converted to white. All cropped DRGs were mosaicked to form one DRG. The mosaicked DRG was reprojected to UTM, WGS84 and cropped to only include the topographic maps. The image was cut into 96 square sections (25km X 25km each) using the Map Series and Mosaic tools in Erdas Imagine.
