Summary

This feature class represents the Bighorn Sheep Units (BSU) in Washington State for the 2013-14 Hunting Season as defined by in the 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' pamphlet and the Washington Administrative Code (Section 232-28-622). Its purpose is to aid Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife staff and the general public to geospatially interpret the Bighorn Sheep Unit legal descriptions as presented in the Hunting pamphlet and the WAC.

Description

This polygon feature class represents Bighorn Sheep Units in Washington State for the 2013-14 Hunting Season. These boundaries are used to determine the areas where the Bighorn Sheep hunts listed in the 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' pamphlet will be carried out.

Use limitations

The data set was created at a 1:100,000. Zooming in to scales finer then 1:100,000 may produce inconsistancies with the actual ground feature being represented. The feature class was created based on the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations" pamphlet. If any difference is found between the legal description for the Bighorn Sheep Unit in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes presidence.

Limitations of use
This data was compiled at a scale of 1:100,000. Data should only be used for general display, mapping, and planning purposes at scales of 1:100,000 or smaller. Extreme care was taken during compilation of these boundaries to ensure accuracy. However, Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) had to rely on outside sources of information when compiling these data, and therefore cannot accept any responsibility or liability for errors and/or omissions in the use of these data. WDFW provides no warranties to accompany this data. Refer to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife 'Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' for more explicit and detailed information on Bighorn Sheep Unit boundary legal descriptions and hunting regulations.If any difference is found between the legal description for the Bighorn Sheep Unit in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes precedence.

Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  feature
Scope description
Attributes The attribute information was derived from Washington Administrative Code 232-28-622. Feature identification was accomplished by consulting WA Dept of Natural Resources 1:100,000 Planimetric Maps, US Geological Survey 1:100,000 and 1:24,000 topographic maps, the Delorme Washington Atlas and Gazetteer, Weyerhaeuser Tree Farm Maps, US Forest Service National Forest Maps, and various municipal road maps.
Features The feature class was designed to be accurate at a scale of 1:100,000 although many portions were taken from source data that was digitized to be accurate at 1:24,000.



Data quality report - Completeness omission
Dimension horizontal


Measure description The initial scale of the base data as it was digitized or transferred was at a scale of 1:100,000 with roads and water features taken from 1:24,000 scaled layers. The selection and mapping of the boundaries is based on the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons & Regulations" pamphlet published by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Dimension horizontal


Measure description The polygons were created from the arcs of BSU_Boundary. The linework described in Legal Descriptions for Bighorn Sheep Units as presented in the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons & Regulations" were used as the basis to create BSU_Boundary. Also included were shoreline arcs. BSU_Boundary was used to create the polygons for BSU_Legal.




Lineage 

Lineage statement
The county24, DNR_MPL, DNR 100k , TRANS_SV and str100 and wchydro and wbhydro feature classes were  the source of the linework that was not add manually. Washington State Public Lands Quadrangle maps, various county and city maps and atlases and Delorme Washington Atlas and Gazetteer were used to identify features. The Washington Administrative Code (Washington Administrative Code - Section of 232-28-622)  and the Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations' pamphlet are the source that dictated what the boundaries were for the Bighorn Sheep Units.
Process step
When the process occurred 2013-02-11 00:00:00
Description I converted the BSU_Legal feature class that I created last year to a point feature class using the Feature To Point ArcTool to create a feature class for labels for the new polygons. I added label points for both the Asotin Raffle Area and the Hall Mountain Raffle Area and removed the Asotin Unit label and filled in the Attributes for both. I then used the Calcuate Field tool to update the "In_Effect_Desc feild to "April 1 2013 to March 31, 2014" for all the points.




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-02-13 00:00:00
Description I created a new polygon feature class, by using Feature To Polygon Arctool, with the BSU_Boundary feature class and the new created label point feature class as the input feature classes.




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-02-13 00:00:00
Description I copied the temporary feature class to a new directory renaming it BSU_Legal




Process step
When the process occurred 2013-03-08 00:00:00
Description I updated the m etadata.

Metadata Constraints 

Constraints
Limitations of use
The data set was created at a 1:100,000.  Zooming in to scales finer then  1:100,000 may produce inconsistancies with the actual ground feature being represented.

The feature class was created based on the "Washington's 2013 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations" pamphlet. If any difference is found between the legal description for the Game Management Unit in the Pamphlet and what is represented in the feature class, the legal description language takes precedence.
Legal constraints
