Supplemental information:
A published revision of the Department Manual's Part 305: Departmental Science Effects, Chapter 3: Integrity of Scientific and Scholarly Activities (305 DM 3), effective December 16, 2014, is available online at http://elips.doi.gov/ELIPS/DocView.aspx?id=4056. Scholarly information considered in Departmental decision making must be robust, of the highest quality, and the result of as rigorous scientific and scholarly processes as can be achieved. Most importantly, it must be trustworthy. This policy helps us to achieve that standard (http://www.doi.gov/scientificintegrity/index.cfm)

Process Step 1
Process description:
BLM contractors used a selection list provided by the BLM District Offices to give FOI polygons a new LUA label. This district-wide coverage was then dissolved along the township boundaries to create township-based coverages.

Data Source used
Process Step 3
Process description:
District personnel updated the LUA coverages, taking into account the sale and acquisiton of land parcels. Salem, Roseburg and Medford district personnel merged data from their XLA layers with their LUA layers. Coverages were forwarded to the BLM OSO, where BLM contractors merged them into one western Oregon coverage. The crosswalk to the Option 9 code was added as a new attribute. The merged coverage was dissolved and inserted into the district libraries.
Process date: 19980101
Data Source used
Process Step 4
Process description:
The LUA map sections were checked for topology errors, edited as necessary, and merged into library-wide coverages (including shared data from adjacent districts). Along the boundaries between districts LUA lines were snapped to FOI lines or, in the absence of these, LLI or DOB lines. The library-wide coverages were clipped to the district boundaries. Each district coverage was checked for topology errors and edited as necessary. The district coverages were all merged into a western Oregon coverage. This coverage was checked for topology errors and edited as necessary. This coverage was inserted into each of the western Oregon district libraries and the map sections checked for topology errors and edited as necessary.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
Instructions: On the top of the page, click on the title of the dataset to toggle opening and closing of all metadata content sections or click section links listed horizontally below the title to open individual sections. Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
Download: FGDC Plus Stylesheet is available from the ArcScripts downloads at www.esri.com.
