FishWildlife_ObservationPolygon

Data format: File Geodatabase Feature Class

File or table name: FishWildlife_ObservationPolygon

Coordinate system: Albers Conical Equal Area

Theme keywords: Wildlife, Habitat

Abstract: The Fish and Wildlife Observation (FishWildlife_Observation) feature class represents sightings of aquatic and terrestrial animals. The feature class includes the sighting location on land or water and the following attributes: scientific name, common name, count, date, life history and life stage, observation method, observer name, observer qualifications, size class, and taxa level. **Please Note: The NRIS feature class is not fully available until all NRIS applications are in production at the Data Center and the NRIS data on the local Forest server are migrated to the Data Center. Please see the following website for the availability of NRIS data at the Data Center: http://fsweb.nris.fs.fed.us/

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.
