Frequently-anticipated questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title: FP_GIS_FPA_

 

Abstract:

The FP_GIS_FPA_ shapefiles represents Forest Practices Application/Notification (FPA/N) harvest unit boundaries, FPA/N specific tabular data, FPA/N specific Office Checklist tabular data and FPA/N specific stakeholder tabular data. An FPA/N may include harvest activity, forest road activity and aerial chemical spray activity. FPA/N harvest units include timber harvest and salvage sites. FPA/N harvest unit polygons are captured from FPA/N Activity Maps. Attribute data is captured from the FPA/N and associated documents, and may be compiled from many sources.

 

Supplemental_Information:

From July 1996 through October 2002, FPSPOLY data was collected in Oracle using the Mapping and Planning System (MAPS). From October 28, 2002 to July 10, 2009, data was collected in Oracle using the Forest Practices Application Review System (FPARS). From July 13, 2009, to the present data is collected in dotNET using FPARSv3.Washington State is divided into two State Plane Zones, north and south. For this dataset, north zone data coordinates have been converted to south zone coordinates.

Why was the data set created?

Forest practice regulation; Timber, Fish & Wildlife (TFW) planning and analysis; natural resource planning; and, general mapping reference.


How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?

FPA/N Activity Maps (source 1 of 1)

Type_of_Source_Media: paper

Source_Scale_Denominator: 1:1,000

  1. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?
  2. What similar or related data should the user be aware of?

How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?
  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?
  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?
  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?

Data are for 'proposed' Forest Practices Application/Notification activities and may not completely represent the 'as built' environment.

  1. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?

Some polygons may be duplicate. Duplication may occur when a renewed Forest Practices Application/Notification is assigned a new FPA/N number (FP_ID) and digitized on top of an existing polygon.


How can someone get a copy of the data set?

Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
