Abstract:
Each of the four Visual Resource Management (VRM) Classes allows for a different degree of modification to the basic elements of the landscape.  VRM classes are assigned to BLM-managed public lands in the Record of Decision for a Resource Management Plan.  They are determined by applying management constraints to Visual Resource Inventory Classes.  This dataset represents VRM classes from the Color Country, Canyon Country, Green River Districts and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.  At this time, this dataset is not complete for the state of Utah. At the time this data set was compiled, no data was available for the West Desert District.
Purpose:
Visual resource considerations must be made in resource management plans (RMP's), in the implementation of projects, and in management actions.
Supplemental_Information:
This data was created by combining Record of Decision datasets from the above listed offices.  VRM management classes apply only to BLM-administered lands. This data set is not complete for the state of Utah.  VRM data are not available for the Salt Lake and Fillmore areas at this time.

This data is suitable for regional planning, management decision support at intermediate scales and cartographic
purposes.  The data is not suitable for purposes of navigation.

If the Receiving Agency (RA) has modified the data in any way, they are obligated to describe the types of
modifications they have performed on hardcopy maps utilizing the data.  RA specifically agrees not to misrepresent the Moab Field Office data sets nor to imply that any changes made were approved by BLM MFO.

No warranty is made by the BLM for use of the data for
purposes not intended by BLM.  This information may be

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM Class 1
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
VRM Class 1 areas are where only natural ecological changes and very limited management activities are allowed.  Any contrast created within the characteristic landscape must not attract attention.   This classification is applied to wilderness areas, visual ACEC's and other similar situations.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
BLM
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM Class 2
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
VRM Class 2 areas are where changes in any of the basic elements (form, line, color, texture) caused by a surface-disturbing activity should not be evident in the characteristic landscape.  Contrasts must not attract attention.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
BLM
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM Class 3
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
VRM Class 3 areas are where contrasts to the basic elements caused by a management activity may be evident, but should remain subordinate to the existing landscape.
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
BLM
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: VRM Class 4
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
VRM Class 4 areas are where contrasts may attract attention and be a dominant feature of the landscape in terms of scale, but should repeat the form, line, color, and texture of the characteristic landscape.
