Publication place: Boise, Idaho

Edition: 5
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Land cover for the Snake River Plain.
Purpose:
To show what land is under agriculture in the Plain and, if it is irrigated, the method of application sprinkler vs. gravity.
Supplemental information:
Procedures_Used: USGS 1:24000 scale quadrangle maps were reduced to 1:40000 scale to match 1987 aerial photography. These photos were then interpreted and land cover was compiled and transferred to the photo-reduced quads. The quad maps with the codes, linework, and attributes were digitized in the Universal Transverse Mercator Zone 11 or Zone 12 in pcARC/INFO 3.4.1 with an RMS of no greater than 0.003. Checkplots were made and checked against the maps from which they were digitized to ensure quality and consistency and to check for technician error. They were then field checked against randomly sampled areas in 1992. Dewayne made some revisions in 1996 and original areas were changed and some areas were added. Dewayne made some revisions in 1997 to areas north of Arco, and to a lesser extent around Bruneau and eastern Caribou county. Revision 1 was initial compilation of data. Revision 2 was made after checkplots were made. Revision 3 made after field checks. Revision 4 is the final version after the 1996 additions. Revision 5 is the final version after the 1997 additions.

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: 2.3
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.
