These data are public information and may be used and interpreted by organizations, agencies, units of government, or others. The user has sole responsibilty for ensuring the appropriate application of these data and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management shall not be held liable for any use or misuse of the data described hereon.

Generally, these data are intented for small scale (1:100,000 and smaller) natural resource management and planning applications. It is strongly recommended that these data be aquired directly from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and not indirectly through some other source which may have changed the data. It is also strongly recommended that careful attention be paid to the content of the metadata file associated with these data. Users are cautioned that digitial enlargement of these data to scales larger than that at which they where originally mapped can cause misinterpretation. Users are further cautioned that these data and interpretations derived from them do not eliminate the need for onsite survey and evaluation of specific sites for intensive uses.
