Data_Quality_Information

Logical_Consistency_Report: All polygons are closed. Note that the ocean areas are therefore cropped.
Completeness_Report: unknown
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Positional accuracy varies. Data north of Manhattan (from HREP Shoreline) is estimated to be accurate within 5m. The data of Manhattan and southwards (from NOAA Shoreline) are less accurate, with inaccuracies estimated to be more than 10m in some places.
