Title: BLM OR Designated Right of Way Publication Polygon
Originators: Bureau of Land Management, Oregon State Office
Publication date: 20130315
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
ROW_DSG_PUB_POLY: This dataset represents areas where ROW granted by the BLM are not allowed (excluded), allowed with special considerations (avoidance), or generally permitted (corridor). The designations are determined through the Land Use Planning process (Resource Management Plan (RMP)). There are four possible designations: Avoidance, Exclusion, Corridor, and Open. The Avoidance designation is described as the area where ROW and other Land Use Authorizations are only allowed, if compatible with existing land designations, and management direction. The Exclusion area designation does not allow ROWs, and other Land Use Authorizations. The Corridor designation includes existing ROW corridors, as well as communication sites, and other land use authorization, plus additional land as appropriate for potential future non-conflicting development. The Open designation is remaining BLM surface jurisdiction.
Purpose:
This dataset is used for depicting the ROW designation areas on maps, for overlaying in GIS with other data themes, and for determining feasibility and impact of project proposals.

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.
