Frequently-anticipated questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title: Boundary
Abstract:
Deschutes National Forest boundaries with internal Ranger District boundaries.
Supplemental_Information:
Procedures_Used: Forest and District boundaries were manuscripted from 1:24000 USGS quad base. Manuscripts were reviewed by District and Supervisor's Office lands and planning personnel. Digitizing was done in a raster based data capture program. Later, as ARC/INFO was acquired, it was imported as an ARC coverage. Some discrepencies of arc shape are noticeable during close examination due to this process.
Revisions: Updates and revisions are made as needed.
Reviews_Applied_to_Data: This dataset was reviewed at the manuscript phase for accuracy.
Related_Spatial_and_Tabular_Data_Sets: none
Other_References_Cited: none
Notes: This data was originally digitized using a raster conversion program. Therefore, at close viewing, some rounding, or "stair stepping" of linework is apparent.

  6. How does the data set represent geographic features?

    1. How are geographic features stored in the data set?

      This is a Vector data set. It contains the following vector data types (SDTS terminology):

      • G-polygon (0)
      • Label point (11)
      • GT-polygon composed of chains (11)
      • Point (4)

    2. What coordinate system is used to represent geographic features?

      The map projection used is Albers Conical Equal Area.

      Projection parameters:
      Standard_Parallel: 43.000000
      Standard_Parallel: 48.000000
      Longitude_of_Central_Meridian: -120.000000
      Latitude_of_Projection_Origin: 34.000000
      False_Easting: 600000.000000
      False_Northing: 0.000000

      Planar coordinates are encoded using coordinate pair
      Abscissae (x-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000000
      Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000000
      Planar coordinates are specified in meters

      The horizontal datum used is North American Datum of 1983.
      The ellipsoid used is Geodetic Reference System 80.
      The semi-major axis of the ellipsoid used is 6378137.000000.
      The flattening of the ellipsoid used is 1/298.257222.
