Data Structure and Attribute Information
Overview
Summary of the information content of the data, including other references to complete descriptions of entity types, attributes, and attribute values for the data.
Entity and attribute overview:
The following layers were used to digitize hunt area boundaries: 
1) State Outline, IDFG's state.shp, a modified version of the Inside Idaho coverage with streams_measured (100k) used for improved hydrography boundaries. NOTE: This boundary file used to clip the 24K GMUs is NOT 24k but 100k in resolution, at time of publishing no official 24k state boundary was available. 
2) County Boundaries from DRG's or where coincident with streams from streams, divides from IDWR Prelim Divides or digitized from DRGs 
3) Roads a. ITD Roads, itd.shp b. National Forest Roads: Boise, Salmon/Challis, Clearwater, Nez Perce c. BLM Roads d. Ada County Roads e. USGS DLG Roads (using GDT and TIGER to determine road names) f. GDT Roads - new construction not represented in other files only g. Digitized from DOQ where not available in any layer (< 5 cases) 
4)Hydrography based on National Hydrography Dataset or digitized from DRGs Note: In all cases where islands are included/excluded from a Unit the appropriate shoreline was used to represent the boundary rather than stream centerline. In case of CJ Strike, the body of water representing the Snake River was used, portion of reservoir attributed to the Bruneau River was excluded. 
5) Divides from IDWR Preliminary New 24k HUC file or digitized from DRGs 
6) Utility Lines and Fences digitized from DRGs/DOQs 
7) Physical Features such as peaks, passes, rocks and the like from GNIS/DRGs 
8) National Wildlife Refuge Boundaries from the IDFG Conservation Data Center (CDC)

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
Metadata profiles defining additonal information:
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.
