Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
KOAC_POLY: This theme maps Late-Successional Reserves associated with known (as of January 1, 1994) spotted owl activity centers in Matrix and Adaptive Management Areas. The criteria for mapping these areas are identified on pages C-10 and C-11 of the Northwest Forest Plan Standards and Guidelines (See supplemental Info.). Supplemental direction to the administrative units in BLM IM OR-2003-001 directed the designation of the 100-acre areas by delineating the stand of trees containing the center of activity as identified in the Spotted Owl Database and additional Habitat 1 or 2 in the vicinity until approximately 100 acres were delineated. If there was insufficient Habitat 1 or 2 to meet the acreage target, then the next best quality habitat was delineated; selecting from stands that exceed 50 years of age. With some exceptions, habitat acres were selected within 3/8-mile of the activity center. If 100 acres were not available within this distance, then only that habitat that was available within the 3/8-mile was delineated. The center of activity did not need to be located in the geometric center of the delineated area. Landscape features such as roads, ridge tops, and streams were used to define the boundaries of the 100-acre areas. Known Owl Activity Centers that included any General Forest Management Areas, Connectivity/Diversity Blocks, and/or Adaptive Management Areas were mapped completely, even if they partially included an area in an LSR, Congressionally Reserved, and/or AMR. Centers which were totally encompassed within LUA theme categories Congressional Reserved, LSRs, and/or AMR were not delineated for this theme.
Purpose:
Resource Management Planning

Coos Bay District Known Owl Activity Centers Update 2002 NSO 100 ac cores - We used the 1998 version (from 3rd yr evaluation) of the 100 ac core coverage as a base to begin editing. As per NFP S&G, no new 100 ac cores were added. Bill Gray snapped the 1998 polys to LLI and FOI as appropriate. In order to be complete for the District, we also snapped 100 ac cores in existing mapped LSRs (based on 1997 version) to LLI and FOI. I quality checked the polys and labels and gave back to Bill for revision.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
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.
Download: FGDC Plus Stylesheet is available from the ArcScripts downloads at www.esri.com.
