Title: BLM OR Wild and Scenic Rivers Line
Originators: OR/WA BLM
Publication date: 20140627
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
WSR_ARC: This layer is the line representation of the designated Wild and Scenic River segments under BLM management within the boundaries of Oregon and Washington. The National Wild and Scenic Rivers System was created by Congress in 1968 to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition. For more information about the WSR Act, river classification, management, and links to related sites go to http://www.rivers.gov/rivers/. This data was constructed to the "Wild and Scenic Rivers Data Standard" http://www.blm.gov/or/datamanagement/index.php.

BLM_ORG_CD
Definition:
A combination of the BLM administrative state and field office which has administrative responsibility for the spatial entity.  This includes which office covers the entity for planning purposes and which office is the lead for GIS edits.  Another agency or individual may have the physical management responsibility for the on-the-ground entity.  This field applies particularly when a spatial entity crosses resource area or district boundaries and the administrative responsibility is assigned to one or the other rather than splitting the spatial unit.  Similarly, OR/WA BLM may have administrative responsibility over some area that is physically located in Nevada, Idaho, and California and vice versa.  When appropriate, the office can be identified only to the district or even the state level rather than to the resource area level.
Attribute definition source:
BLM
GIS_MILES
Definition:
The area of a polygon as calculated by GIS in acres.  Must be recalculated with every edit submission.  The acres will be automatically calculated when the feature classes are published.  The BLM_ORG_CD will be used to determine the appropriate projection.

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.
