Description:
Abstract:
This data set consist of digital data describing (WSA) Wilderness Study Area Boundaries for the State of Colorado. The data set includes 1:24,000 wsa maps for the four BLM Districts in Colorado: Grand Junction, Craig, Canon City, and Montrose. Data originally digitized using ArcEdit. Data set is projected into UTM zone 13. Individual coverages were merged into a single coverage. The file was checked for polygon topology, dangles, and slivers. Any errors of this kind were corrected before creating the E00 ArcInfo interchange file.
For more information on the BLM standard/metadata refer to Instruction Bulletin 99-210 located at:
<URL:http://www.fgdc.gov/Metadata/Metadata.html>
Purpose:
To illustrate Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) for the State of Colorado and for BLM (RMP) Resource Management Plan analysis and decision making.

Process_Description:
Individual 24K coverages merged into State Wide coverage (QA and QC) applied. Data at this time were not standard across BLM District boundaries. WSA National Standard was applied. Line work also attributed to national standard. Data were check against original manuscripts and updates were made where applicable. Region WSA was also created from the item wsa_number in the coverage.pat file.

Sand Castle WSA were deleted and is now part of The Great Sand Dunes National Preserve. Dominguez Canyons WSA Boundary has been adjusted per Grand Junction Field Office direction/legislation and has been converted to BLM Wilderness. You can view the adjusted boundary in the BLM Wilderness Area GIS Theme.
