FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

THE final versions.  Delivered to Steve Keegan 5/16/95. They need to go to the district rangers AGAIN to get the final okay.  Once that's done, they will become Management Area 14.

Some updates included adding middle ground to NF Malheur River and to the Malheur River.
 Extending the visibility analysis on Canyon (past Canyon Meadows Resevoir to Buckhorn Mdws trailhead); on Road's End (rzn); and on the Wilderness Lp (14 Road by checkerboard east of Strawberry Wilderness).

Updated Prairie City's portion on f04vis and clipped a new d4vis.  Marc Strong marked several polys for either exclusion or inclusion.  A few areas along the Glacier corridor dissolved into the unseen area when they should have been seen, so these areas were replaced as seen areas.  The revised d4vis was plotted on mylar with solid shades and given to Brad Cownover (PC) 12/4.
