Title: Shallow Lakes Identified by DNR Wildlife

Abstract: This is a polygon coverage of shallow lakes in Minnesota. In this coverage, a "shallow lake" is defined as a basin 50 acres or greater in size having a maximum depth of 15 feet or less. It was created using the MN DNR's 'DNR 100K Water (hydrography)' coverage as a base.

A list of shallow lakes was generated from a query of all lakes with assigned Division of Waters ID numbers. Lakes with unknown depths were assigned a depth of '0', and were subsequently included in the list of shallow lakes. Some of these lakes with unknown depths may be deeper than 15 feet, and therefore, not shallow lakes. The depth values are updated as additional data is obtained, and the non-shallow lakes are removed from the list and the coverage.

Purpose: This layer was created to help resource managers identify shallow lakes for wildlife habitat restoration and enhancement.

Section 2: Data Quality

Attribute Accuracy:

Logical Consistency: Data are topologically correct using ArcView 8.x and 3.x. Topology verified using ArcInfo 8.x clean and build. All polygons are closed and lines intersect where intended

Completeness: This is not yet a complete coverage of all shallow lakes in Minnesota.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy: Source layer lake_shalwpy2: Horizontal positional accuracy is based originally on 100k USGS source quadrangles, and has been improved by on-screen digitizing over USGS 1991-1992 DOQ imagery.
