RAMADDA - Repository for Archiving, Managing and Accessing Diverse DAta
Entry ID: RAMADDA
Abstract: This dataset contains boundary layers for the Edmunds Division of
the Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge.
National Wildlife Refuges are federal lands managed by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The primary source for boundary
information is the USFWS Realty program (status maps, legal
surveys). A joint effort between the Region 5 (northeast - ME, MA, NH,
VT, RI, CT, NY, PA, NJ, MD, VA, ... WV) GIS Lab and Realty program, has
resulted in digital refuge boundaries for all refuges in the northeast
at a 1:24,000 scale.
The purpose of this data set is to serve as a spatial reference of
refuge boundaries for other data layers in GIS and mapping
applications. It is specifically not intended to be used as a land
survey or representation of land for conveyance or tax purposes. The
Realty Survey program in USFWS is developing cadastral information
(boundary and acreage data) appropriate for legal purposes. It is
expected that data created in this project will be replaced as better
survey information is collected.
Status maps were registered to geographic coordinates, boundaries
digitized and labeled, then stepped through 3 levels of quality review
for spatial and thematic accuracy. Complete process description can be
found in Service Lands Boundary Data SOP.
Refuge boundaries define areas that are approved by U.S. Congress for
acquisition in the National Wildlife Refuge System, or are currently
owned by USFWS. Arcs are coded with an item "boundary" that the type
of boundary line and polygons are coded with an item "status" that
describes their ownership status.
