Abstract:
This theme is polygon data that depicts two types of
development for the state of Wyoming. The first is existing
development and the second are habitats where there is a
high likelihood that development will occur in the near
future. We considered development of oil, gas and coal bed
methane, mining of minerals (trona, uranimum, coal, and
bentonite), urban expansion. Other infrastructure
activities such as roads, highways, fiberoptic lines,
processing plants, pipelines, other facilities, and
various combinations of development that were believed to
impact sage-grouse were recorded. Information sources and
assessment processes varied depending on data available and
resource specialist participation for areas within the
state. These reviews were intended to provide an
understanding of how management activities within portions
of the state fit in with broad-scale ecosystem and public
land management.
Purpose:
Wyoming BLM had an immediate need for a single, overall
spatial portayal of general development and potential
development for land use planning and habitat conservation
planning. This effort is part of a larger national BLM
effort concerning sagebrush and sage-grouse.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Field resource specialists from BLM, Wyoming Game and Fish
Department, Forest Service, Natural Resources Conservation
Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Fish and Wildlife
Service developed and reviewed the digital and hard copy
maps. Edits were made to the maps based on field knowledge
of ground conditions as they existed at that date. No other
validation was conducted.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Data has been checked for topological consistency. There
are no dangling arcs, unlabled polygons, or other
topological errors.
Completeness_Report:
Data was collected statewide regardless of ownership. Most
transmission lines were not included in this mapping effort.

Source_Contribution: This theme provided a background
information showing roads, streams, and topographic
features that were used by resource specialists to
attribute or edit polygon boundaries.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Baseline data was collected from various sources and
reprojected, if necessary, via ArcInfo 7.1. Data for the
state was clipped by 1:100,000 USGS quad maps. Fifty-two
maps comprise the State of Wyoming. Maps were clipped to
reduce file size and facilitate file management. A
two person team (biologist and GIS specialist) visited with
local, federal, and state resource specialists at various
locations throughout the state to delineate developed and
potential for development habitat polygons. Electronic data
at 1:100,000 was projected via a LCD projector using
ArcView 3.2. Data themes were alternatively turned on and
off to orient resource specialists and determining current
vegetation communities within each polygon. Resource
specialists reached concensus concerning the attributes
and polygon shapes. Polygon size was normally no smaller
than 40 acres due to the scale and lack of acurate detailed
data.
Following visits to field offices, the two person mapping
team edited maps to edge match polygons across map borders
and check for topological and attribute consistency. Draft
maps were then printed on mylar and sent to field offices
for editing. Following receipt of edited maps from field
offices, final edits were made to each map. The resulting
ArcView shape files were imported into ArcInfo 7.2 as
coverages, projected, and merged into one statewide coverage.

ENTITY_AND_ATTRIBUTE_INFORMATION


Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
This data set is in the format of one ArcInfo7.2 coverage
of polygon features of vegetation categories. Three field
were developed with this data set. The three fields are
name, type, and stage. The name field provides a general
descriptive name of the developed habitat or potential for
development habitat polygon. The type field provides a
short description of type of development or potential
development. Examples of the type field include oil and
gas fields, coal mines, bentonite mines, power plants, etc.
The stage field includes developed and potential for
development. The fields Shape, Area, Perimeter, Wy_sb5_,
and Wy_sb5_id are software generated.
