Description:
Abstract:
Was derived from the data included in original file CULTUREF. Delineates the area following a generalized line along the outside edge of all parks in Allegheny County.
Purpose:
Data was developed as part of the effort to establish large scale base data to support a Geographic Information System in Allegheny County
Supplemental_Information:
Data meets or exceeds map accuracy standards in effect during the spring of 1992. Baymont Technologies held a contract with Allegheny County and Equitable Resources to fly the County and Equitable Resources Service Area to produce planimetric data. Subcontractors for the project included: Howard Hartman and Associates who provided ground control for the flight; Aerial Data Reduction (ADR) who performed the photography; Centec and Baker Engineers who digitized the data. Photography was produced at a scale of 1"=1500'. Mapping was stereo digitized at a scale of 1"=200'. Digital Orthophotos were not included as a deliverable. The Parks shapefile was created as one member of a group called culteref. Besides Parks, these files include Golf, and Cemetery.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Data is based on Allegheny County base data which was produced at a scale of 1" = 200'.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Data was subject to QA/QC process at the time it was recieved (1992-1996). Data was produced in a series of 1,362 tiles measuring about 4,600 feet X 3,500 feet. Tiles are numbered in a clockwise spiral fashion starting with #1 at the point in downtown Pittsburgh. Data from most tiles was delivered by 1996 when GIS Operations ceased in Allegheny County, with the exception of one person in the Health Department.
Completeness_Report:
There is data for all of the municipalities in the county, with some holes in some layers. It is estimated that between 16 and 91 tiles of data might be missing in a layer.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Geodetic reference framrwork was created using NAD 83, the result of the latest geodetic readjustment by NGS at the time. Photography was produced at a scale of 1"=1,500'. Mapping was stereo digitized at a scale of 1"=200'. Map data meets or exceeds map accuracy standards in effect during the spring of 1992.
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: +/- 5 feet
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Geodetic reference framrwork was created using NAGVD 29 in conformance with the monument densification program outlined in the County of Allegheny Geodetic Control Report
