Title: BLM OR Grazing Allotments and Pastures Polygon
Originators: Bureau of Land Management
Publication date: 20140717
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
GRA_POLY: Livestock grazing allotment and pasture boundaries with associated attributes describing some basic characteristics of the allotments and pastures. Each allotment has one or more pastures. This data is designed in accordance with the OR BLM "Grazing Allotments and Pastures Data Standard."
Purpose:
Land use planning, allotment management plans, and analysis.
Supplemental information:
BLM -Bureau of Land Management Animal Unit - Considered to be one mature cow of approximately 1,000 pounds, either dry, or with a calf up to 6 months of age or equivalent based on a standardized amount of forage consumed. AUM (Animal Unit Month) - The amount of dry forage required by one animal unit for one month based on a forage allowance of 26 pounds per day. RAS (Rangeland Administration System) - The system used by BLM for billing for grazing on public land. The system contains allotments, pastures, permittees, grazing fees and other pertinent information related to public land grazing. Fenced Federal Range - Generally a small amount of public land fenced with a large amount of private land. Seed Ripe - In terms of plant phenology, it is that point from where seed becomes hard to the beginning of seed dispersal. Custodial - An area where the grazing system is not defined and resource values on public land are protected.

Attribute definition source:

ALTPAST
Definition:
The polygon identifier for the allotment and pastures.  It normally consists of the five-character allotment number, an underscore (_), and the two-character pasture number.   All preceding blank characters must be populated with zeros.  For example:  allotment number 302, pasture number 2, would be input as 00302_02.  This field may be used as a link to other related databases, including RAS.  The ALTPAST concatenated with Administrative state (derived from BLM_ORG_CD) is unique in RAS, but, in GRA, it is possible to have more than one polygon with the same ALTPAST.  In this case, RAS acres are the sum of the polygon acres.  Also, not all allotments and pastures are included in RAS.  There is dependence between this attribute and the GRAZSYS (Grazing Allotment System CD) attribute.  Certain codes in GRAZSYS dictate the form that this (ALTPAST) attribute takes.  Certain questions must be asked in order to determine the correct choice for ALTPAST.  The most important is the question:  Is this area within an allotment or not?  This may take some research into old files to determine.  Many areas assumed outside of allotments are, in fact, still officially included in an allotment.  Because pastures are defined by fences, not exact ownership lines, there are many instances where slivers and small parcels of BLM are fenced in with areas outside of allotments.  There are also scattered, isolated BLM parcels that are not included in allotments.  The various choices for ALTPAST are described below. Areas within Allotments: 1.  General Pastures usually contain a large percentage of public land but can have a large percentage of private land if the pasture is part of a grazing system in an AMP.  This is the type of pasture present in most allotments and is always listed in RAS.  All records in RAS should have corresponding polygons in GRA, but not vice versa.  Because RAS is for billing, GRA will have areas not covered by RAS.  Valid value:  05231_11 2.  The FFR is an allotment which is mostly private but contains some public land fenced within.  This area is always listed in RAS.  The ALTPAST should have the standard format as for General Pastures.  The GRAZSYS is Custodial.  3.  Mostly Private Pastures which contain a very small percentage of public land, usually slivers of public land where fences do not follow ownership lines, are another type of areas within allotments.  These pastures are included within an allotment and should (but may not) be listed in RAS.  The GRAZSYS is 99.   Valid value:  06010_99 4.  Exclosures are areas designed and constructed with the idea of keeping   livestock and sometimes wildlife out of a particular area.  If they are large enough, they should have pasture numbers within allotments and be included in RAS.  The GRAZSYS is EX, RX, MX, or XX.  Valid value: 05231_11  Areas NOT within Allotments: 1.  Not Allocated areas are closed to livestock grazing through a LUP decision or legislation.  No allotment or pasture numbers would be assigned to these areas and they are not included in RAS.  The GRAZ_SYS has NX.  Valid value:  NOALC  2.  Completely private, state, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, or other lands which are not part of any allotment controlled by a BLM district and do not fall under BLM grazing management.  These areas would not be within any allotment or pasture and would not be in RAS.  The GRAZ_SYS is "00" (zeroes).  Valid value:  OUT 3.  Unallotted areas are BLM lands not officially assigned to a particular livestock permit.  These lands are not closed to livestock grazing and could be assigned to a permit in the future.  These areas may have an allotment and/or pasture number and may be included in RAS.  The GRAZSYS has Unallotted.  Districts with large, non-BLM areas surrounding scattered BLM parcels may have large polygons labeled "UNALT" if there is no grazing management on these scattered BLM parcels and no identified fences to block off the large non-BLM blocks.  Valid value:  UNALT.

Process Step 2
Process description:
Manuscripting - District staff copied grazing allotment and pasture boundaries onto mylar quad-based map overlays. Existing fence lines shown on U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) quad maps were copied onto the mylar maps. Additional fence lines were added from orthophoto quads, aerial photos, GPS or other sources. Allotment/pasture name and number attributes were also placed onto the mylar maps in preparation for digitizing. Road and Stream lines already available in digital line graph (DLG) format as part of the USGS cultural features theme or from the Forest Service's cartographic feature file (FS_CFF) theme were copied directly into the GRA theme. Some fence lines defined as following or paralleling a road at a set distance and others defined as left or right stream banks were input by copying the road or stream centerline into a temporary file, building a buffer based on the distance from the centerline, and adding the buffered line to the GRA theme. BLM contractors or GIS staff digitized some of the lines from the map overlays or conducted "heads up" digitizing using Arc/INFO ArcEdit module. Heads up digitizing involved digitizing lines on the screen using scanned aerial photos (i.e. DOQ), satellite imagery, or digital raster graphic (DRG) files as a backdrop. Labels were added, lines and polygons attributed, and the theme run through quality control and corrected, where necessary. The individual quads were merged into a single Arc/INFO coverage, attributes were rechecked, and then the theme was inserted into the District libraries. (NOTE: It is expected that GPS and other data sources will be used in the future to more accurately locate fence lines and collect/import this data into this theme).

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.
