Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Planning units were determined by the various Bureau of Land Management planning teams.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
This dataset contains a compilation of planning boundaries whose sources vaired. Originally, BLM established Management Framework Plans (MFP). Those boundaries came from data stored in the Alaska Land Information System. Most MFPs have been replaced by RMPs with the exception of the northern portion of the Southwest MFP. The RMPs and IAPs were created using a combination of 1:63,360 and 1:250,000 scale quadrangles. Additionally, the IAPs utilized portions of the Alaska Rectangular Survey Plat Process (ARSUPP) and the BLM Survey Plats. Since this data was to be primarily used for cartographic representation and not intense analysis it didn't seem inappropriate to mix the scales and source information. This data is best suited for viewing on a statewide level.
Completeness_Report:
This dataset was originally created in a response to a data request by WO in 2000. The data has been updated as new plans have been established or as older plans have been amended.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The horizontal accuracy is dependant upon the quality of the boundaries under which each RMP, MFP, or IAP were digitized.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Vertical accuracy was not assessed.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The process for the development of this coverage has been ongoing. Initially, a collection of known shapefiles were constructed together in response to a request from the WO to obtain all states planning boundairies for inclusion onto the BLM internal planning website. Collected for the website included; RMP Shapefile, the NPRA boundary, Fortymile MFP, Glennallen MFP, Northwest MFP, and Southwest MFP.
The file titled RMP included Central Yukon RMP, Steese NCA RMP, White Mountains NRA RMP, Utility Corridor RMP, and Fort Wainwright/Ft. Greely RMPs. These were all digitized on a digitizing tablet using boundaires from the individual planning documents.
The NPRA boundaries were created by the BLM Northern Field Office (NFO).
The MFPs with the exception of the Northwest were created based on "Windows" created in the Alaska Land Information System. These Wndows were converted to GRID which were then converted to coverages. The Windows consisted of MTRS entered in by specialists as a way to track activities within the specified area. The Northwest MFP was created on screen by a Physical Scientist using a combination of legal descriptions and maps located within the MFP itself.
As planning efforts increased and new plans developed, the accompanying datasets were added to this dataset. In cases where a RMP succeeded (will succeed) a MFP, the MFP boundary was replaced with the current RMP boundary. This was the case for the East Alaska RMP (replaced Glennallen MFP), the Kobuk River Seward Peninsula RMP (replaced Northwest MFP), and the Eastern Interior - Fortymile RMP (replaced Fortymile MFP). The East Alaska coverage was developed in the Glennallen Field Office while the KSP and Eastern Interior - Fortymile boundaries were created by personnel from the NFO.
The Ring Of Fire RMP dataset was created in the Anchorage Field Office (AFO) at the outset of the plan in 2002. The original plan was called South-Southeast and included Bristol Bay and Goodnews Bay. This was later determined to be too broad and the respective bay areas were dropped from the ROF plan consideration.
The Bay planning boundary was created in the AFO in 2004. This plan includes the Bristol and Goodnews Bay areas of which were dropped from the ROF.
The ADNR Conservation System Unit (CSU) boundary layer was used to check RMP boundary locations for the White Mountains NRA as well as the Steese NCA.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
The first six items in the polygon atribute table are automatically generated by ARC/INFO software. Contact ESRI or read their literature for detailed descriptions of their internal file structure. ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc.) can be reached at: <URL:http://www.esri.com>
The remaining attributes were added as a way to track plan status and standing of each planning unit.
Entity_and_Attribute_Detail_Citation:
Attributes were derived from finding a general way to track plan details. For specific plan information, obtain the original plan ceverage or contact the specific planning lead.
