Use Constraints The DOQQs from which the shorelines were interpreted meet National Map Accuracy
Standards at the production scale of 1:12,000 using the American Society for
Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) method. Consider the scale in
displaying and using the vectors. Displaying the vectors at scales larger than
those of the source documents is considered bad practice.
