Abstract:
The Recreation feature dataset describes the spatial location of dispersed and developed recreation sites and Recreation Opportunity Spectrum (ROS) areas within or in close proximity to an administrative unit, and wilderness recreation management areas within a federally designated Wilderness. This feature dataset is a product of the Pacific Northwest Region Coverage to Geodatabase Conversion Project in an effort to standardize data throughout the Region. The following feature classes meet USDA Forest Service National GIS Data Dictionary Standards: RecreationOpportSpectrum, RecreationSitePoint, RecreationSitePolygon, WildernessRecMgtPoint, and WildernessRecMgtPolygon.
Purpose:
The Recreation feature dataset contains feature classes and relationship classes associated with recreation corporate data. Dispersed recreation sites are stored in two feature classes. DispersedRecSitePoint represents recreation sites so small they are displayed as points, and DispersedRecSitePolygon represents recreation sites large enough to be represented by area features. The developed recreation sites are stored in three feature classes. RecreationSiteLine represents recreation sites which can be represented by line features, RecreationSitePoint represents recreation sites so small they are displayed as points, and RecreationSitePolygon represents recreation sites large enough to be represented by area features. Any type of recreation site may be contained in the feature classes but any given recreation site must be contained in only one of the three feature classes. Wilderness recreation management areas are stored in two feature classes. WildernessRecMgtPoint represents wilderness recreation management sites so small they are displayed as points, such as campsites, campsite complexes and day use sites. WildernessRecMgtPolygon represents wilderness recreation management areas large enough to be displayed as polygons, such as wilderness compartments, wilderness concentrated use areas, wilderness opportunity class areas, wilderness travel zones, wilderness permit zones, and special management areas. Recreation sites and wilderness management areas are grouped hierarchically as defined in the associated Infra Oracle tables. For example, a campground may be composed of many loops, which may be composed of many campsites. The campground may also include other facilities such as boating areas and picnic grounds. Campgrounds may be grouped into complexes. There are four levels to this hierarchy but not all levels are necessarily used for any given site and some recreation subtypes may occur at more than one level of the hierarchy, depending on which other recreation sites they are associated with on the ground. In the "wilderness hierarchy" a wilderness may be sub-divided into one or more compartments, which can then contain one or more concentrated use areas, which may contain multiple campsites. The wilderness feature classes should be edge-matched with the adjoining forest(s) when the wilderness is managed by two or more national forests. Also, where the outside boundary of these areas abut the wilderness boundary, these feature classes should be coincident with the wilderness feature class in the Special Management Area layer of the Lands Theme.
