    Description: 
      Abstract: 
      The United States Military Installations database contains the boundaries 
      and location information for important military installations in the 
      United States and Puerto Rico. The database includes records for 385 
      military installations. 
      Purpose: 
      To provide graphic representation, location and attribute data for 
      military installations which can be used for analysis, modeling, 
      simulation, and planning.

  Data_Quality_Information: 
    Attribute_Accuracy: 
      Attribute_Accuracy_Report: 
      Attributes for the military installations database were added using a 
      Geographic Information System (GIS). Attribute values were created by the 
      Military Traffic Management Command Transportation Engineering Agency 
      (MTMCTEA), and were compiled from unclassified sources such as the 
      "Geolocation File." They have been quality reviewed by both MTMCTEA and 
      the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). 
      Quantitative_Attribute_Accuracy_Assessment: 
        Attribute_Accuracy_Value: unknown 
    Logical_Consistency_Report: 
    All node-link and polygon topological relationships are created and verified 
    using computer algorithms. Unique entity identifiers were similarly verified 
    using ArcInfo. 
    Completeness_Report: 
    The United States Military Installations database contains the boundaries 
    and location information for important military installations in the United 
    States and Puerto Rico. The database includes records for 385 military 
    installations. 
    Positional_Accuracy: 
      Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy: 
        Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: 
        The Military installation database was compiled from TIGER/Line data 
        having a positional accuracy measure of +/- 80m for the contiguous 48 
        States plus Washington D.C and Hawaii. TIGER/Line files for Puerto Rico 
        and Alaska were compiled at a scale of 1:125,000.

        Process_Description: 
        Military installation boundaries were added from TIGER data and 
        topologically integrated. The dataset was checked for completeness and 
        accuracy in ArcInfo and was converted to polygon shapefile format.
