Title: Consumptive irrigation
Originators: Idaho Department of Water Resources
Publisher: Idaho Department of Water Resources
Publication place: Boise, Idaho
Publication date: 19911218
Edition: 1.0
Data type: vector digital data
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
This is the official map of consumptive use irrigation and field headgate requirements
for use in water right adjudications and for water right licenses, permits, and transfers.
The purpose of the map is to provide consistent standards
in a simple format.
Supplemental information:
Consumptive irrigation requirement is based on the most
water-consumptive crop in the area, generally rounded to
the next highest 0.5 acre-foot/year/acre.
The field headgate requirement is the consumptive
irrigation requirement divided by the irrigation
application efficiency (which is typically 70% to 75% for a
modern irrigation system), rounded to the nearest 0.5 acre-foot/year/acre.

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 additional information:
Profile: ESRI Metadata Profile
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.3
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.
