Logical Consistency: Data are topologically correct. All polygons are closed and lines intersect where intended.

Completeness: This layer will be updated twice a year:
In spring, to reflect open and closed permit areas for the spring turkey season
In late summer, to reflect open and closed permit areas for the fall turkey season.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy: Original features were copied from USGS DLG data in 1992. All updates have been done by copying features from the Minnesota Department of Transportation roads layers; Minnesota DNR lakes, rivers and streams layers; and from other sources as needed.

Vertical Positional Accuracy: Not Applicable.
