Description:
Abstract: A region polygon dataset categorizing land in terms of ecological significance and status of protection in the Central Basin and Range (CBR) Rapid Ecoregional Assessment. This dataset identifies lands that have been identified as ecologically significant to biodiveristy but not yet legally protected (Places I - Sites of High Biodiversity), lands that have some type of protection status, often federal or state (Places II - Specially Designated Areas of Ecological and/or Cultural Value), and lands that may be ecologically significant but are managed for multiple use (Places III – Other Managed Lands).
Purpose: This dataset was produced for use in statistically and spatially quantifying the relative level of ecological significance and protection of conservation element distributions within the CBR (gap analysis).

Use Constraints: These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "as is" and may contain errors or omissions. The User assumes the entire risk associated with its use of these data and bears all responsibility in determining whether these data are fit for the User's intended use. The information contained in these data is dynamic and may change over time. The data are not better than the original sources from which they were derived, and both scale and accuracy may vary across the data set. These data may not have the accuracy, resolution, completeness, timeliness, or other characteristics appropriate for applications that potential users of the data may contemplate. The User is encouraged to carefully consider the content of the metadata file associated with these data. These data are neither legal documents nor land surveys, and must not be used as such. Official records may be referenced at most BLM offices. Please report any errors in the data to the BLM office for which it was obtained. The BLM should be cited as the data source in any products derived from these data. Any Users wishing to modify the data should describe the types of modifications they have performed.

Attribute Value Accuracy Information:
Attribute Accuracy Report: Unknown
Logical Consistency Report: This region datasest is a merge of twelve different source datasets. All attributes from the USGS PADUS 1.2 dataset were included, but for all other source datasets only key attribute fields from each source dataset were included in the CBR places dataset.
Completeness Report: Complete - data represents the most accurate/currently available data on protected areas / landuse for the CBR.

Process Step:
Process Description: Twelve source datasets were used to produce the CBR REA Places dataset: USGS Protected Areas Database of the United States (PADUS) 1.2, TNC California Essential Habitat Connectivity Essential Connectivity Areas (ECA), TNC Portfolio Terr Phase1 Sites, USFWS Crtical Habiat (line and polygon), Nevada Important Bird Areas (IBA), Nevada Priority Conservation Areas 2006, Bighorn Sheep Management Area, USFWS Desert Tortoise Critical Habitat (areas recommended for recovery), National Inventoried Roadless Areas, NLCS Historic Trails, NLCS Scenic Trails, NLCS Wild and Scenic Rivers.

Process Step:
Process Description: The historic trail, scenic trail and wild and scenic river line datasets were first buffered by 15 meters on either side of the line to create polygon dataset and then each source dataset was clipped to the CBR REA boundary.
Process Date: 20120326
Process Step:
Process Description: The twelve CBR subsets were then merged together into a CBR REA Places dataset. The CBR REA Places dataset is a region polygon dataset with overlapping polygons. All attributes from the PADUS 1.2 dataset were retained, but only key attribute fields from each of source datasets (e.g. name, ID) were included in the CBR Places dataset (see metadata from original source datasets for information about these attributes).
Process Date: 20120326
Process Step:
Process Description: A SourceData attribute field (text) was added to the CBR Places dataset and coded with abbrevations (e.g. USGS PADUS 1.2, NV IBAs, etc.)
Process Date: 20120326
Process Step:
Process Description: A PlacesCd attribute field (numeric, short integer) was added to the dataset. PADUS records with GapStatus 1 or 2 were coded as PlacesCd=2. A few PADUS records were identiified as critical habitat for a particular species and were coded as PlacesCd=1. The majority of the remaining PADUS records were classified as PlacesCd= 3. A number of records were coded as PlacesCd= 4 - these represent non-protected lands in the PADUS 1.2 dataset (e.g. prison, playgrounds, private land inclusions within state and national protected areas). These were included for completeness, so that users could see the classification of all PADUS records, but these records were not used to define any Places. All records from TNC California Essential Habitat Connectivity Essential Connectivity Areas (ECA), TNC Portfolio Terr Phase1 Sites, USFWS Critical Habiat (line and polygon), Nevada Important Bird Areas (IBA) and Nevada Priority Conservation Areas 2006 were selected and the PlacesCd was coded as 1 (Places I - Sites of High Biodiversity). All records from Bighorn Sheep Management Area, USFWS Desert Tortoise Critical Habitat (areas recommended for recovery), National Inventoried Roadless Areas, NLCS Historic Trails, NLCS Scenic Trails, NLCS Wild and Scenic Rivers were selected and the Places CD was coded as 2 (Places II – Specially Designated Sites of Ecological and Cultural Value).
