Attribute:
Attribute_Label: VRM_CLASS
Attribute_Definition:
The assignment of the four VRM classes is ultimately based on the management decisions made in Resource Management Plans.

Bureau of Land Management
Attribute_Domain_Values:
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM 1
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
The objective of this class is to preserve the existing character of the landscape.  This class provides for natural ecological changes; however, it does not preclude very limited management activity.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape should be very low and must not attract attention.  Class I areas include wilderness areas, wild portions of wild and scenic rivers, and other congressionally and administratively designated areas where decisions have been made to preserve a natural landscape.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
Bureau of Land Management
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM2
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
The objective of this class is to retain the existing character of the landscape.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape should be low.  Management activities may be seen, but should not attract the attention of the casual observer.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
Bureau of Land Management
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM 3
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
The objective of this class is to partially retain the existing character of the landscape.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape should be moderate.  Management activities may attract attention but should not dominate the view of the casual observer.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
Bureau of Land Management
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM 4
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
The objective of this class is to provide for management activities which require major modification of the existing character of the landscape.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape can be high.  These management activities may dominate the view and be the major focus of viewer attention.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:

Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: No VRM
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
