Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
This data set reflects miscellaneous hydrography line features in the Boise National Forest, Idaho. It was generated from Cartographic Feature Files. The CFF files (quads) used dated between 1987-1992.
Purpose:
This dataset was designed to be used for map display, and analysis. These data should be displayed and analyzed at scales appropriate for 1:24,000-scale data. No responsibility is assumed by the Boise National Forest GIS Staff in the use of these data.
Supplemental information:
Procedures_Used:
Procedure was started in 1993.  CFF files (quads) used date between 1987-1992.

Cartographic Feature Files (CFF), Scale 1:24000 HYDROMISC 416 Perennial Ditch, 417 Intermittent Ditch, 442 Rapids Large, 444 Water Channel, 452 Siphon, 424 Aqueduct Tunnel, 423 & 425 Aqueduct, 418 Canal, 440 Falls Large, 314 Levee, 152 Dam Masonry-Earthfill didn't fit into the polygon layer, 403 Canal (could be miss coded). When selecting or reselecting use hydrocff = 418.

Only some annotation (anno.hydro) added using PBS quad. maps as reference, for display at 1:24000.

To complete the Hydrography Layers you need, STREAMS, Lakes, and SPRINGS.

Generated from Cartographic Feature Files using Feafix.aml, Feafix.aml puts the .fea file into a form that UNIX can use.  Proccff.aml generates the .fea, .pip & .lin files into a Line and Point coverage, the coverages have cff-code1 - cff-code5.  Summary.aml adds items and reselects cff-codes and gives a 1 to the items that fits the cff code description and it separates the cartographic feature files into as many as 30 layers per quad.

The orginal coverage contributed by Diane McConnaughey was imported into ARC/INFO, renamed, and exported.  The file was then compressed using GZIP.

Metadata included with the original coverage (created using DOCUMENT.AML) was imported.  If the metadata was not FGDC compliant, it was updated to be compliant.

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 Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
Metadata profiles defining additonal information:
Profile: ESRI Metadata Profile
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.

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.
