Abstract:
Roadless Areas on the Lincoln National Forest. One of the two White Mountain Wilderness roadless areas in the 1999 study was missed. This data reflects the White Mountain Wilderness correctly encompassing two roadless areas. The two areas were originally referred to as: White Mountain Wilderness (Unit 091) and White Mountain Wilderness (Contiguous area 070).
Purpose:
To depict inventoried roadless areas on the Lincoln National Forest
Supplemental_Information:
Roadless area management became a focus of National attention in 1972 when the Forest Service initiated a review of NFS roadless areas greater than 5,000 acres to determine their suitability for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System. Additional reviews have been conducted through other assessments and the land and resource management process as required by the National Forest Management Act of 1976. These areas are sometimes referred to as RARE II (Roadless Area Review and Evaluation). These areas possess social and ecological values and characteristics that are considered as becoming scarce in an increasingly developed landscape.

The Forest Service uses the most current and complete data available. GIS data and product accuracy may vary. They may be: developed from sources of differing accuracy, accurate only at certain scales, based on modeling or interpretation, incomplete while being created or revised, etc. Using GIS products for purposes other than the purpose for which they were created, may yield inaccurate or misleading results.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
This data was originally digitized from a 1/2" to a mile hard copy map into GIS. It was then refined and made coincident with roads or other features to help define the boundaries. The data was revisited in 1999 in response to the Forest Service-wide Environmental Impact Statement title "Forest Service Roadless Area Conservation." The data was generated by the Forest, sent to the Regional Office for incorporation into the National process. An error was noted after the process. The area in the southern most part of the Guadalupe was labeled in the above document as "...recommended for wilderness. This is incorrect and is documented in the Record of Decision dated 10/31/86 as "Recommended nonwilderness designation for the Guadalupe Escarpment Wilderness Study Area and three adjacent study areas administered by the Bureau of Land Management. This 2006 version was used to do a Forest analysis in response to the United States District Court Northern District to California "Order Granting Injunctive Relief."
