Abstract: BLM DRAFT DATA. Restoration Design Energy Project. Bureau of Land Management, Arizona State Office, in conjunction with Environmental Management and Planning Solutions, Incorporated (EMPSi). GIS data created by Marcia Rickey, EMPSi, 303-447-7160, in conjunction with Kathy Pedrick, BLM Project Manager, David Batts, EMPSi, Lane Cowger 602-417-9612, BLM Assistant Project Manager, and Jim Kenna, State Director. RDEP data was also created with input and data from the BLM RDEP interdisciplinary team, AZ BLM field office managers and staff, cooperating agencies, environmental groups, utility and industry groups, and the general public. This data represents the areas eliminated from consideration for the Renewable Energy Development Areas (REDAs) for RDEP. Areas eliminated from consideration has known resource sensitivities and are therefore less suitable for renewable energy development. REDAs are areas in Arizona with low or no known resource conflicts according to our analysis, and therefore may be suitable for renewable energy development. RDEP is a statewide analysis but decisions will be made on BLM land only. REDA data was created by compiling over forty GIS datasets of known resource constraints, such as National Landscape Conservation System lands, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, wildlife habitat and species of concern data, recreation and visual data, etc. RDEP Draft Chapter 2 Table 2-1, list of known resource conflicts lists data sets and the RDEP references section lists sources that were eliminated from consideration. This dataset shows many resources used in the analysis, not all datasets were included due to some datasets being private or sensitive. Private,or sensitive, or other agency's data include: AZGFD conservation potential, AZGFD special status species location data, AZGFD big game habitat, sensitive fossil areas, and cultural areas.

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.

BLM DRAFT DATA. Restoration Design Energy Project. Bureau of Land Management, Arizona State Office, in conjunction with Environmental Management and Planning Solutions, Incorporated (EMPSi). GIS data created by Marcia Rickey, EMPSi, 303-447-7160, in conjunction with Kathy Pedrick, BLM Project Manager, David Batts, EMPSi, Lane Cowger 602-417-9612, BLM Assistant Project Manager, and Jim Kenna, State Director. RDEP data was also created with input and data from the BLM RDEP interdisciplinary team, AZ BLM field office managers and staff, cooperating agencies, environmental groups, utility and industry groups, and the general public. 
This data represents the areas eliminated from consideration for the Renewable Energy Development Areas (REDAs) for RDEP. Areas eliminated from consideration has known resource sensitivities and are therefore less suitable for renewable energy development. REDAs are areas in Arizona with low or no known resource conflicts according to our analysis, and therefore may be suitable for renewable energy development. RDEP is a statewide analysis but decisions will be made on BLM land only. 
REDA data was created by compiling over forty GIS datasets of known resource constraints, such as National Landscape Conservation System lands, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, wildlife habitat and species of concern data, recreation and visual data, etc. RDEP Draft Chapter 2 Table 2-1, list of known resource conflicts lists data sets and the RDEP references section lists sources that were eliminated from consideration. 

This dataset shows many resources used in the analysis, not all datasets were included due to some datasets being private or sensitive. Private,or sensitive, or other agency's  data include: AZGFD conservation potential, AZGFD special status species location data, AZGFD big game habitat, sensitive fossil areas, and cultural areas.
