Description:
Abstract:
The ‘Urban_Municipality’ layer, as part of the ‘Saskatchewan Administrative Boundary’ data set, contains the annual copy of the GIS layer taken from Information Services Corporation of Saskatchewan’s live geospatial database at the end of each calendar year. The data is comprised of geospatial locations and attributional information for all of the rural municipalities that reside within the province of Saskatchewan. The layer identifies each urban municipality by name, location and number. This data is suitable for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Computer Aided Drawing Systems (CAD).
Purpose:
The ‘Saskatchewan Administrative Boundary’ data set is distributed as the annual release of the provincial boundary as well as all provincial/national parks, rural municipalities, urban municipalities and Indian reserves that reside within the province of Saskatchewan. The data set is produced from Information Services Corporation’s live integrated geospatial database at of the end of each calendar year and is produced in conjunction with the ‘SaskGIS Cadastral’ and ‘SaskGrid TFM’ data sets.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attributes have been created by two means, depending on the attribute. Some, like the PPID, are generated by the system according to a set of rules. Others, have been manually entered (transcribed) from the source documents.
Transcribed values are checked manually on a sampling basis to identify errors. As well external sources of information have been used to validate the values wherever possible.
There is no independent quantification of the accuracy rate for the attribute values but it is believed to be very good.
Logical_Consistency_Report: The data is free of duplicates and overlapping features.
Completeness_Report:
The data is complete as of the production date for the current year (January 10th). Any changes made after the production date will be reflected in the following year's release
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The positions in this data set are correct to within 5-10 metres in the rural portions of the province and to within 1-2 metres in the urban portions. The relative accuracies are better than 5 metres in the rural areas and 1 metre in the urban areas for points that are near each other. The relative accuracies decrease as the distance between points increases.
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: varies
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
The accuracy of the coordinate varies with the age of the survey, the quality of the survey and the quality of the control in the area of the survey. There has been no attempt to quantify these contributing factors. The coordinates were calculated using information shown on plans of survey and then fit together and, where the fit between the various plans was within acceptable limits rubber sheeted (adjusted) to fit exactly. Where plans did not fit together properly other sources of information were used including, but not only, historical survey plans, field measurements, and aerial photographs.
