Title: BLM Alaska Field Offices
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
This dataset is the official representation of the BLM Field and District office boundaries in Alaska. This dataset was screen digitized by hand from information provided by personnel at the Anchorage, Glennallen and Fairbanks offices.
Representatives from the respective offices agreed on the official boundaries and this information was provided to the state office in the form of shapefiles or geodatabases where they were compiled into one dataset.
Purpose:
This dataset was generated to be the official spatial record of the BLM Field Office boundaries in Alaska. It is intended to be used for general mapping purposes

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Screen digitized from township/section grid and other geographic features following information provided by office personnel.
Each district office representative agreed on the resulting boundaries.
Where the boundary followed section or township lines it was snapped to the BLM Sections NAD83 Grid.
The boundary was then unioned with the Alaska Coastline 1 to 63360 poly
Field Office Boundaries were dissolved by district office and field office values into 5 multipolygon features for 1. Anchorage District Office, Anchorage Field Office; 2. Anchorage District Office, Glennallenn Field Office; 3. Fairbanks District Office, Arctic Field Office; 4. Fairbanks District Office, Central Field Office; 5. Fairbanks District Office, Eastern Field Office.
