Frequently-anticipated questions:

What does this data set describe?

Title: Data
Polygon coverage that delineates the Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP) Management Areas for the Ochoco National Forest and Crooked River National Grassland.
This plan was prepared in compliance with 36 CFR 219, based on the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act as amended by the National Forest Management Act of 1976, and in compliance with 40 CFR 1500 based on the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969.
Because the Plan is a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment, an environmental impact statement (EIS) was prepared. The Plan provides direction for implementing the preferred alternative selected in the EIS.
Management Area boundaries are current as of the June 1991 LRMP. No updates have occured since 1991.

  5. What is the general form of this data set?

    Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data

  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):

      • Complete chain (1031)
      • Label point (430)
      • GT-polygon composed of chains (430)
      • 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 0.000125
      Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000125
      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.

      Altitude_Resolution: 0.000100
      Explicit elevation coordinate included with horizontal coordinates

How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?

    (source 1 of 1)
    Type_of_Source_Media: stable-base material
    Source_Scale_Denominator: 24,000

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: 1994 (process 1 of 3)
    Original linework manuscripted on stable mylar, registerd to 1:24,000 Primary Base Series Maps and based on Forest Plan analysis maps prepared at various scales. Manuscripts were scanned and imported into ArcInfo coverages. Original data was collected in State Plane Coordinate System (Oregon South, fipszone 3602) NAD 1927 CONUS. It was reprojected to UTM Zone 10, NAD 1927 CONUS for consistancy with adjacent FS and BLM units.
    Occasional Updates have been made to correct errors and reflect changes in LMP allocations at irregular intervals.
