Description:
Abstract:
A spatial tiling index designed for storage of file-based image and other raster (i.e., LiDAR elevation, landcover) data sets. An irregular grid of overlapping polygons, each enclosing its respective Public Land Survey System (PLSS) township in an orthogonal polygon minimally encompassing all portions of that township, i.e., minimum bounding rectangle. The amount of overlap between adjacent tiles varies depending on the geometry of the underlying township. Currently extended to include all townships within or partially within King County as well as those townships in the southwestern portion of Snohomish County included within King County's ESA/SAO project area. The name of the spatial index is derived from the acronym (I)n(D)e(X) (P)olygons for (T)ownship-(R)ange, (M)inimum (B)ounding (R)ectangle, or idxptrmbr. Tile label is the t(township number)r(range number)as in t24r02. The meridian zone identifiers, N for townships and E for range is inferred as this index is intended as a local index for ease of use by the majority of users of GIS data. Lowercase identifiers are used for consistency between Unix and Windows OS storage. This index or tile level is the primary user-access level for most LiDAR elevation, orthoimagery and high-resolution raster landcover data. However, not all image and raster data is stored at the tiling level if a given data's resolution does not justify storing the data as multiple tiles.
Purpose:
This index is the primary User Access level for image/raster datasets. It provides multiple file-based data sets to be accessed at full or near full resolution in a common, consistent tile and naming scheme. The index also serves as a useful central reference scheme for identification of real-world locations as it references the commonly used township-range grid of the PLSS. As each cell is defined with orthogonal edges relative the Washington State Plane coordinate system, and is defined by easting and northing bounds rounded to the nearest 100 foot, it accomodates most common pixel resolutions of multiple Ground Sample Distance without partial pixel effects and without zero or NULL data 'splinters'.
Supplemental_Information:
This spatial index is one of three index or tiling levels used to store King County image and raster data. The index level lower than this is the idxp7500 index. The index level immediately higher than this is idxpzone. Each higher index level is designed to build upon the lower levels, with the same data often stored at more than one level (though at different resolutions) to meet a range of business and software requirements. Individual shapefiles for each of the cells in this index are available in gisimage/images/reference/indexes/idxptrmbr_shp as 'tileabb'mbr.shp.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Identifiers for each cell are unique and reference the underlying township/range that encompasses.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All cells have a label attribute. The half-townships in eastern King County are included in the tile of full township of the same name, i.e., t24.5sr11e is included in the t24r11 tile.
Completeness_Report:
The index currently covers the King County and southwestern Snohomish County areas currently involved in several related image/raster data acquisition projects. The extent has been buffered to encompass some adjoining areas. Those tiles at the edge of the current data project area are defined to their full township extent to allow appending subsequent townships if necessary.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The bounds of each cell were generated from State Plane easting and northing coordinate values defined by a minimum bounding rectangle interpretation of the township extent. Overlap with adjacent tiles was provided to ensure sufficient data buffers. The interpreted bounds were rounded up the next nearest 100 foot easting and northing value.
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Heads up digitizing was used to create minimum-bounding rectangles around each township in the project area. This portion included the subjective interpretation of the amount of buffer to include in each tile. This was performed in a CAD-based software package called VROne
Process_Date: 20020301
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The minimum and maximum bounds were captured in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet where the bounds were rounded to the next highest 100 foot easting and northing increment.
Process_Date: 20020501
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The spreadsheet was converted to a text file which was used in an ArcInfo AML to create individual shapefile polygons for each township tile. The shapefiles were merged in ArcView to a composite shapefile. Final attributes, including min and max bounds and identifiers were appended from a text file converted to a dbf.
Process_Date: 20030201
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Some of the township tile bounds along the edges of the King County were not described to the true extent of the township but rather to the extent of the data available from the data projects. To standardize the extents of all tiles and to ensure that subsequent tiles could be appended, any partial townships were regenerated. The Excel spreadsheet was updated to reflect the new bounds, new tiles generated and the composite index shapefile was updated.
Process_Date: 20030601
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
To accomodate the larger extents of newer imagery acquisition projects, additional township tiles were appended to all edges of the grid, resulting in a final grid that covers all directions equally.

Spatial_Data_Organization_Information:
Indirect_Spatial_Reference:
The PSLC project area in combination with the King County ESA/SAO Project area comprise the entirety of King County and southwestern Snohomish County (WRIA 8). The PSLC portion encompasses approximately 500 square miles, including Vashon Island, the Seattle urban environs, and mid-central King County. The ESA/SAO portion, approximately 1800 square miles, includes the remainder of King County and the Snohomish portion.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
All tiles are identified with a several attributes that indicate the tile-id, its bounding coordinates and the township-range represented. As the shapefile serves primarily as a spatial index,the mbr_abb and mbr_abblc are the primary attributes needed to correctly reference and describe the location of the cell tile.
