  Description:
    Abstract: This data set represents areas where the planning, designing, and implementation of management objectives are to maintain scenic value and visual quality in the Bureau of Land Management, in Wyoming.
    Purpose: This data set is used to assist the BLM in scientific and integrated land use planning activities.
    Supplemental_Information:
      The five degrees of accepatable visual change within a characteristic landscape are summarized as follows:
      Class I - Natural ecological changes and very limited management activity allowed (e.g., willderness areas, wild and scenic rivers).
      Class II -  Change in any of the basic elements caused by a management activity should not be evident and must not attract attention.
      Class III - Management activity is evident but should remain subordinate to the existing landscape..
      Class IV - Any management activity should repeat the form, line, color, and texture of the characteristic landscape.
      Class V - Rehabilitation is needed to bring it up to one of the four other classifications.
      FS = lands administered by the Forest Service
      NP = lands administered by the National Park Service
      uncl = not classified for VRM
