Description:
Abstract:
This data set is a result of combining data sets that were collected at each BLM Colorado Field Office and using other source material of various ventages from the BLM Colorado State Office. In most cases the data was referenced from BLM's 100K Sub-Surface Published Maps (the most recent publications). In other cases data the source data was compiled to 7.5 minute USGS Quads and mosaic together to create a seamless field office layer. BLM State Office GIS Staff obtained these datasets and created a statewide mosaic. In cases where data was out dated or missing in the final mosaic, BLM Colorado GIS Staff filled in the gaps and updated the data layer by heads up digitizing using the most recent scanned and geo-refernced digital 100K Surface/Sub-Surface in a GIS system.
Purpose:
To illustrate Federal Sub-Surface Mineral Rights for the State of Colorado in a GIS format.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute accuracy is tested by manual comparisons of the source with hard copy plots and/or symbolized display of the Land Status on a interactive computer graphic system. Data was also compared to Master Title Plats and survey notes at the Bureau of Land Management.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Polygon and Arc-Node topology present. Coverage checked and passed for topology errors.
Completeness_Report:
Data completeness for this data set reflects the content of the source graphic, MTPs, conversations with other land agencies, and survey notes. Features may have been eliminated or generalized on the source graphic due to scale and legibility constraints.
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Existing data was collected from the various BLM Colorado Field Offices. The individual data sets were mosaic. After this was done the dataset still had may gaps. GIS specialist filled in the gaps by "heads up digitizing", using BLM's 1:100,000 scale Surface and Sub-Surface maps as a guide. Other source material was used also, like; Master Title Plats, Land Ownership information and survey data.

Data may be very accurate in some areas and not so much in others due to collection methods, source materials, and time constraints. Plans for the future include loading this dataset into ArcSDE and openiing it up to field editors and reviewers.
