Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
foi_pub_poly:This theme describes forest cover (vegetation) and land use management attributes within Forest Operations Inventory units (polygons) such as site class, denudation cause, dominant species, understory species, treatments, age class, and stand condition. Note* There are two versions of the FOI dataset. This metadata describes the publication version which contains a scaled back set of attributes. Contact the Distributor if the full version of FOI is needed.
Purpose:
Resource Management Planning, Site Specific activity planning, general resource management.
Supplemental information:
BLM (Bureau of Land Management), ADS (Automated Digitizing System), MOSS (Map Overlay Statistical System), WODDB (Western Oregon Digital Database).

Overview
Summary of the information content of the data, including other references to complete descriptions of entity types, attributes, and attribute values for the data.

Definition:
The ES field is a concatenated field of timber type. Codes are described in the foicodv2.htm file located on the BLM FTP site at ftp://ftp.or.blm.gov/gisweb/metadata/foicodv2.htm.   To describe an example like FCO D4-1800//H3D3=1940:  The "FCO" part of the example contains the cover condition.  Following next is the alpha numeric codes that describe the species, size class and stocking level of the overstory dominant species, the dominant understory, and the secondary understory.  The "D4" is the Dominant Species code (LF), plus Dominant Species Size Code (LG).  (In this example "D4" would translate to Douglas-fir, large saw timber 21+inches DBH.)  The "-" symbol describes the Dominant Species stocking class code (SEC).  The "1800" is the overstory year of origin, or Birthdate (DK).  The "//" symbol is not a single separator, but it is actually TopLayer/MiddleLayer/BottomLayer and "//" in this case indicates there is not a middle layer present in the example.  The "H3D3" describes an understory stand composed of Hemlock dominant and Douglas-fir secondary dominant species, size class 3.  The "=" describes a medium stocked understory, and the "1940" is the Understory Birthdate year (ZY).  In summary, the example stand would be described as,  Douglas-fir Size class 4, one-bar stocking, birthdate 1800 overstory, with a Hemlock and Douglas-fir size class 3, two-bar stocking, birthdate 1940 understory.

Data Quality and Accuracy Information
General
Information about the fidelity of relationships, data quality and accuracy tests, omissions, selection criteria, generalization, and definitions used to derive the data.
Logical consistency report:
The polygons were checked against the original source for consistency. There are no node errors or open polygons. This theme was built with polygon and line topology.
Completeness report:
This theme covers Western Oregon BLM-managed lands falling within BLM Salem, Eugene, Roseburg, Coos Bay, Medford, and Lakeview Districts.
Attribute Accuracy
Accuracy of the identification of data entities, features and assignment of attribute values.
Attribute accuracy report:
Attributes were checked against original mylar maps for accuracy.
Attribute accuracy assessment:
Accuracy values
ES
Explanation:
The ES field is concatenated from fields in an original database that is not fully represented in the FOI data table, and can vary depending on the attribute values in the source fields (ie, some values may be <NULL>, resulting in different "looking" concatenated values for ES.) To compound that, some of the data has been added to a new format, so the original metadata doesn't completely describe the field definition as it exists at this time.

Process Step 2
Process description:
Individual tiles of FOI merged to a single coverage. XOI tiles also merged to a single coverage. Since some inventory polygons were depicted in both coverages, the XOI polygons with SUBJ_XOI values that matched a record in the FOI coverage SUBJ_FOI field were deleted from the XOI coverage. The remaining XOI and FOI were merged into a single feature class. All attributes were removed other than SUBJ_FOI the key field for linking to tables imported from the Micro*Storms application. The polygons were then dissolved on the field SUBJ_FOI to create a single record for that value. Some multi-part polygons may have been created as a result of this operation.

FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
Instructions: On the top of the page, click on the title of the dataset to toggle opening and closing of all metadata content sections or click section links listed horizontally below the title to open individual sections. Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
