Description:
Abstract:
This data depicts range improvement projects (RIP) on BLM land in the Pinedale Field Office including type of project, located and date constructed or implemented. This data does not address condition of RIP. These projects are constructed with the objective of improving rangelands through the proper distribution of livestock.
Purpose:
This dataset keeps an accurate spatial inventory of range improvement projects (RIP) on the ground. Range personnel can use this data to determine need for new RIP's. Also, this data is used to determine wheter a proposed action is going to conflict with the objective of an existing RIP.
Supplemental_Information:
Condition of RIP's are unknown to date. Some projects may be non-functional, administratively abandoned or viable but in need of reconstruction. Please use data with caution.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attributes are believed to be accurate. If there are errors, as people review actions in the field office, errors should be found and reported. There are blanks (or unknowns) in the attribute table. The data was either not found in the RIP file or unknown. Eventually, the data gaps should be lessened. Status of the projects (e.g. whether functioning or defunct) is not known or determined on all inventoried projects. No formal tests have been run.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
These data are believed to be logically consistent, though no tests were performed.
Completeness_Report:
Data is as complete as can be found in the RIP files. If there are omissions in the table, the data could not be located or wasn't present with the record.

Locational data found within RIP files may be available otherwise, points are located on a quarter-quarter basis within the section.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Each RIP file was examined for location information. Most data is located by quarter-quarter section though some data such as reservoirs could be placed more easily when compared to a topographic map that had the reservoir represented. These RIP files were also the source for the tabular information
