Why was the data set created?

To assist the public and King County Sheriff Office to know where firearms may legally be discharged


How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: 05-Sep-2005 (process 1 of 3)
    Gather legal descriptions of No Shooting Areas from King County Code Section 12.68

    Date: 28-Oct-2005 (process 2 of 3)
    Create No Shooting Areas polygons using Road layer, Quarter Section layer and Voting Precinct layer

    Date: 14-Nov-2005 (process 3 of 3)
    Check for errors - quality control

  3. What similar or related data should the user be aware of?


How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?

    Date of enactment of No Shooting Area (ORD_DATE) is accurate only to the year in most cases. Some No Shooting Areas can only be estimated from unclear legal descriptions in code

  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?

    Boundaries are conflated to multiple layers one or more of the following: plss, plss_qtr, votdst, st_address, wtrbdy and parcel

  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?

  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?

    Contains all no shooting areas describe in King County Code Section 12.68 as of October 2005

  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?

    Polygons may overlap - this is not an error


How can someone get a copy of the data set?
