Frequently-anticipated questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title: Recreational Opportunity Spectrum
Abstract:
This layer stores the recreation opportunity spectrum for the forest. It is a polygon coverage containing information on the recreation opportunity spectrum. The layer is not yet complete (10-26-92). All line data and attributes have been input, however, the coverage has not been checked for errors.
Supplemental_Information:
This layer was digitized off of paper 1:126720 topographic maps. The polygons were drawn onto these maps with colored pencils and highlighters by landscape architects. There is no current procedure for updating the ROS layer of the Siuslaw National Forest.

  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):

      • G-polygon (333)
      • Label point (333)
      • GT-polygon composed of chains (333)
      • Point (350)

    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 0.000100
      Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000100
      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.
