Description:
Abstract:
This data set depicts designated Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management. This dataset identifies designated Areas of Critcal Environmental Concern (ACECs) established through land use planning.
Purpose:
ACEC designations highlight areas where special management attention is needed to protect and prevent irreparable damage to important historic, cultural and scenic values, fish or wildlife resources, or other natural systems or processes, or to protect human life and safety from natural hazards.  The ACEC designation indicates that BLM recognizes that an area has significant values and has established special management measures to protect those values.
Supplemental_Information:
Procedures used by Salt Lake BLM field office: The majority of arcs that are based on legal descriptions were either screened digitized and snapped to the Geographic Coordinate Database (GCDB) coverage or were selected from the GCDB coverage and "put" into the AOACEC coverage.  Lines based on other features (roads, land status, plss) were selected from coverages and put into AOACEC.  The Central Pacific Railroad Grade ACEC boundary was created by buffering roads and, in some cases, buffering the railroad grade that was screen digitized from digital ortho photos.

Reviews Applied to Data: Data were reviewed in ArcInfo for positional accuracy.  Boundaries that were coincident and vertically integrated with other features were reviewed for positional accuracy at scales of 1:600 or larger with the respective feature as a back coverage.  Where legal land descriptions were available the digital data were verified by the GIS Coordinator and/or a BLM Realty Specialist by comparing ACEC boundaries with the legal descriptions.

Related Spatial and Tabular Data Sets: aoacec_admin.rel, aoacec_reason.rel

Notes: Although only public lands can actually be designated as ACECs, ACEC boundaries often include state and private lands that would be managed as part of the ACEC, if acquired by BLM in the future.  These inclusive boundaries also facilitate planning.

The western most boundary of the Central Pacific Railroad Grade ACEC was estimated at 100 feet northeasterly from what appears to be Engineer Station on the DOQ as per the description of the boundary.

There is a discrepancy in the Donner Creek/Bettridge Creek ACEC Management Plan.  The plan map shows 280 state acres, but 320 state acres are listed in the document.  An internal working map of the ACEC was drawn with 320 acres.  According to the SLFO Realty Specialist, Mike Nelson, and Environmental Specialist, Alice Stephenson, the plan map is in error. The correct boundary as represented by the GIS data was taken from the working map and includes 320 state acres.  No legal description for this ACEC has been located.

The Horseshoe Springs ACEC boundary is based on an internal working map.  No legal description has been located.

There is a discrepancy between the legal description and the planning document map of the Laketown ACEC boundary.  According to the SLFO Realty Specialist, Mike Nelson, the legal description is in error.  T 12 N, R 5 E, Section 26, N1/2 NW1/4 SW1/4 should be T 12 N, R 5 E, Section 26, S1/2 NW1/4 SW1/4.

The Salt Wells ACEC boundary description is limited to township, range, and sections and number of acres within each section.  The GIS Coordinator in conjunction with Mike Nelson, Reality Specialist, determined boundaries based on this information and the small scale map in the Box Elder Plan Amendment.  The map and description are not detailed enough to guarentee the accuracy of the boundary in several of the partial sections.

This data was prepared at, and is believed to be accurate, to the 1:24,000 scale.
Data prepared at the Salt Lake Field Office: Where legal land descriptons were available the digital data were verified by the GIS Coordinator and/or a BLM Realty Specialist by comparing plots of ACEC boundaries and GCDB quarter quarter sections with the legal descriptions. Boundaries that were coincident and vertically integrated with other features were reviewed for positional accuracy in ArcInfo (ArcEdit) at 1:600 or larger with the respective feature as a back coverage. Detailed source information was not available in several cases. BLM SLFO Realty Specialists were consulted when there was a need to resolve conflicting information or when there was a lack of detailed information in the descriptions and maps. Overall accuracy for this data is not greater than national mapping accuracy standards (NMAS) for USGS source maps

Where the road on the Central Pacific Railroad Grade veered off of the center line of the original grade the line of the grade was screen digitized using digital orthoquads (DOQs). These lines were buffered 60.96 meteres (200 feet) each side and were put into the acec_all coverage. Original line work was deleted in these areas (split, delete). The eastern most and western most ends of the ACEC were moved to more accurately represent the boundaries in the legal description. The western most boundary was approximated as beginning 100 feet east of Engineer Station

This field should be in uppercase (for example, OR035582).  This is a BLM International Organization for Standardization (ISO) assigned number used for identification of all lands and minerals case files including ACECs. This is the link to the LR2000 database. N/A - Not Applicable is the default code and will be used when no casefile number has been assigned. A value of "UNK" indicates unknown.

Attribute_Label: ACEC_EST_ACR
Attribute_Definition:
The measure of the area estimated in the designation process for land use planning.  This is the designated size (acres) and may be different than the actual area.  This does not change.  Acres are calculated using the following formula:  [Acres = Area (in meters)/4046.87].  This may be different than the GIS calculated area of the ACEC polygon.  This field value should be the same for each polygon in an ACEC comprised of multiple polygons.  The values in this field do not change.  Do not use this field to derive GIS acres.

Attribute_Label: GIS_ACRES
Attribute_Definition:
This is a calculated value of area in units of acres based on the area field created by default within the ESRI Polygon data structure.  For the purposes of a 'national data layer', the data are to be stored in geographic coordinates which do not correspond to ground values.  This requires that there be a standard method for calculating this attribute.   The method used for these data are as follows:  The data are projected into a standard projection such as the ESRI default Albers projection for the continental United States, "US Albers NAD 1983."  Once the data are projected, then a calculation of "SHAPE_Area (square meters) * 0.0002471044  = acres" is applied to the existing 'area' field that is default area created by the ESRI software resulting in the field (Attribute) 'SHAPE_Area'.  Please note that the figure used in this calculation is the factor for converting the US Survey Foot value of for the length of a meter as opposed to the International Standard for converting meters and feet.

Attribute_Label: ADMIN_ST
Attribute_Definition:
An administrative unit that identifies the state or geographic area which has administrative jurisdiction over lands, and cases, although the land for a case may not be physically located in a state. Only those states that are BLM administrative states are in the domain for this entity. Example: Montana is the Administrative State for public lands in the geographic States of Montana, South and North Dakota.  A two letter, upper case abbreviation for the administrative state office.  Attribute Domain Assignment:  DOM_ADMIN_ST  Default:  XX

Attribute_Label: ADMIN_OFF
Attribute_Definition:
A BLM code for the individual office that is responsible for the administration of the ACEC.  This represents a concatenation of the values for State Office Code, District Office Code, and Field Office Code, if applicable.  The value for this field can be obtained using the Field Calculator in ArcMap ([ADMIN_OFF] = [admin_st] + [admin_do] + [admin_fo]).  Note:  If the value for any one of the 3 office codes is changed, the ADMIN_OFF values must be updated by running the Field Calculator function again.
