Recreation Site Points

Data format: ArcInfo Coverage

File or table name: rec_site_pt

Coordinate system: Albers Conical Equal Area

Theme keywords: recreation, boat ramp, camp site, campground, picnic ground, viewpoint

Abstract: This dataset is based on the standardized recreation site points coverage delivered from the R6 Data Standardization Team 12/07/2005 .The forest data that was on the coverage is now in a table called rec_site_pt.rel. This dataset currently includes boat ramp, developed campsite, picnic ground, viewpoint, and trailhead. Data collection may not be comprehensive forestwide for categories other than developed campsite. FS GIS DATA DICTIONARY TEXT: Describes the spatial location of recreation sites within or in close proximity to an administrative unit.Recreation sites are stored in three covers. The cover rec_site_pt represents recreation sites so small they are displayed as points, rec_site_pl represents recreation sites large enough to be represented by area features, and rec_site_ln represents recreation sites that are represented by lines. Any type of recreation site may be contained in any of the covers but any given recreation site must be contained in only one of the three covers. Recreation sites are grouped hierarchically. 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. Although this hierarchy is not described in the GIS Core Data, it is described in the associated INFRA ORACLE tables Associated National Application: Infrastructure (INFRA) Recreation

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.

FS GIS DATA DICTIONARY TEXT:
Describes the spatial location of recreation sites within or in close proximity to an administrative unit.Recreation sites are stored in three covers.  The cover rec_site_pt represents recreation sites so small they are displayed as points, rec_site_pl represents recreation sites large enough to be represented by area features, and rec_site_ln represents recreation sites that are represented by lines.  Any type of recreation site may be contained in any of the covers but any given recreation site must be contained in only one of the three covers.

Recreation sites are grouped hierarchically.  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.  Although this hierarchy is not described in the GIS Core Data, it is described in the associated INFRA ORACLE tables

Associated National Application:  Infrastructure (INFRA) Recreation

Purpose:
This dataset is intended for forestwide analysis use in conjuction with attribute data store in Infrastructure (INFRA) Recreation, and alternatively with the INFO table called rec_site_pt.rel containing legacy Forest recreation site information.

Data Quality Information:


Completeness report:
29 points identified as campgrounds in the legacy data have not been identified in the IWeb INFRA database. If these are developed campgrounds, they need to be entered into IWeb INFRA. If these are dispersed camp sites, they need to be moved to the rec_disp_pt coverage. Preliminary location of Trailheads was made using Latitude/Longitude entries in IWeb INFRA. Trailheads with missing Lat/Lon were identified by description and trail location. Trailhead locations need to be verified by recreation resource specialists.QA/QC has not been completed to identify records in INFRA that do not have a spatial feature in the coverage.
