Completeness_Report:
These maps are available in GIS. Original copies of these maps (except Walla Walla County, Washington) are located at the University of Washington libraries in Seattle. The Regional Office Geometronics Unit digitized four of them in 1993 (using a contract with Infotec in Portland; see Holt 1993); seven others were electronically scanned by Olympic Reprographics (Seattle) and then saved in Autocad format. Note: as far as I can determine, maps for southern Umatilla, southern Union and Wheeler counties do exist but copies were never located, so this GIS coverage is in-complete with respect to the entire Umatilla National Forest. In September 2002, a contract was awarded to Titan Geospatial Services Division (Portland, Oregon) to edge match all eleven county maps and merge them into a single, seamless, geo-referenced GIS coverage covering the entire Umatilla National Forest. Appendix A provides a detailed description of this coverage's legend, including a lookup table relating map attributes to cover types, cover type groups, size classes, size class groups, stocking classes, structural classes, structural class groups and timber harvest. Titan Geospatial Services prepared a display version of this map (Umatilla National Forest portion only) for use with Acrobat Reader (pdf file format) and it is available on the Forest's historical website: <http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/uma/publications/history/maps.shtml>

Process_Description:
Coverage was created by a contractor from scanned images of hard copy maps. The coverage is not complete as all of Umatilla County was not completed. Coverage was reproject from UTM 11 zone 11 and then topology was built. Metadata was completed where possible.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
These blue-line sheets came from an early mapping effort that provided an impressive amount of detail. Not only were forest-type codes provided, but information about stocking (poor, medium, well), age (10-year classes), associated species (western larch, Engelmann spruce, white pine) and evidence of past timber harvest were included. Type codes allowed deforested burns and non-restocked cutovers to be shown, with codes added for drought-killed, insect-killed, or windthrown stands. Each of 41 different cover types was denoted using an alphanumeric code, sometimes in conjunction with cross-hatching or other annotations. The numbers of Castell or Dixon colored pencils were provided with the legend so that map users, if they so desired, could hand color the maps using a consistent color scheme.
