A new data evaluation tool has been added to the Division's suite of Tools and Resources.

Data evaluation levels provide a means of classifying property data according to how the data were acquired, processed, and reported. This new tool is based on the operational protocol discussed in the NIST Recommended Practice Guide SP 960-11. The protocol provides an interactive, step-by-step procedure in the manner of a decision tree. Based on the user's responses to a series of questions, the tool determines the appropriate data evaluation level for a given set of data.
