Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the National Conservation Areas (NCA), National Recreation Areas (NRA), and Special Management Areas (SMA) within Alaska. NCA and NRA data is based entirely on the "Administrative Large Parcel Boundaries" dataset produced by the AK Department of Natural Resources. SMA data was derived from Alaska State DNR PLSS section data. Inholding information from Native Allotment dataset.
Purpose:
This dataset was generated to depict those areas defined as National Conservation Areas, National Recreational Areas and Special Management Areas within Alaska.
Please consult BLM-Alaska's Land Information System for the Legal Land Descriptions for each of the National Conservation or National Recreational Areas.

Process_Description:
For Steese and White Mountain NCAs, downloaded latest "Administrative Large Parcel Boundaries" from AK Department of Natural Resources as gzipped arcinfo export file.
The Lake Todaton SMA was created from Alaska State DNR PLSS section data from the Bettles and Hughes 250k quads, section lines were snapped to vertices and edges.
Imported adminbnd.e00 file as source coverage.
Created nca coverage from national landscape conservation system gis boundary data standard using BLM's statewide township coverage as the tic-bnd for the new coverage.
