Datasheet dates..

Recommended Posts

While getting the database ready for the new GE tools, I've come across a few amusing little 'errors'. Most noticable would be AG7407, which apparently had a recovery in .. an impossible month:

 AG7407  HISTORY     - Date     Condition        Report By
AG7407  HISTORY     - 1982     MONUMENTED       FLDNR
AG7407  HISTORY     - 19980112 POOR             USPSQD
AG7407  HISTORY     - 20030709 MARK NOT FOUND   USPSQD
AG7407  HISTORY     - 20092709 GOOD             FLDEP

(In case your eyes scan over it, the 27th month? :))

I read that recovery as the 27th of September in 2009.

Just looked at the shape files for a few of my recoveries in Park Co, Montana. Looks like the convention there is YYYYMMDD. I learned a long time ago that it is hard to typo 15Feb2013.

Mike, will your new program recognize UNK as a date? MEL

It didn't, until I found that date. :)

 

For the 'monumented' date, the program will pick the next recognizable date. This happens more often than know, as 'UNK' is often used for old, ol stations for First Observed/Monumented descritions. For other bad recovery dates, the date will be the first of the year, *or* the next day after the previous recovery.

 

And, a lot of my work on updating the Google Earth database had me working on NGSGPX v3. Yeah, I'm still working on it, slowly. :)
