Entity and Attribute Information:
Detailed Description:
Entity Type:
Entity Type Label: BLM BER: BLM Wild Horse and Burro Herd Management Areas (polygon)
Entity Type Definition: BLM managed wild horse and burro herd areas, herd management areas, and historical areas.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: OBJECTID
Attribute Definition: Internal feature number.
Attribute Definition Source: ESRI
Attribute Domain Values:
Unrepresentable Domain: Sequential unique whole numbers that are automatically generated.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: SHAPE
Attribute Definition: Feature geometry.
Attribute Definition Source: ESRI
Attribute Domain Values:
Unrepresentable Domain: Coordinates defining the features.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: HMA_NAME
Attribute Definition: Herd Management Area Name. The designated name of the Herd Management Area as declared by BLM. (Logical Attribute: Herd Management Area Territory Name. The name of the Herd Management Area or Forest Service Wild Horse Territory by which it is known to the business. A Congressionally designated area of land to which specific laws and regulations pertaining to the management of wild horses and burros are applied. The Bureau uses the term Herd Management Area; the Forest Service uses the term Wild Horse Territory.)
Attribute:
Attribute Label: HMA_ID
Attribute Definition: The designed primary key that will uniquely identify a single occurrence of the entity. The six character code number assigned to the Herd Management Area. The code consists of the two character administrative state abbreviation, followed by an assigned four digit code. This field is used to connect this spatial dataset to the current WHB system, and should match that number.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: GIS_ACRES
Attribute Definition: The area of the polygon described in the Polygon Form Unit of Measure Type Name. The entire acreage of the polygon regardless of land status. Default: 0.0 This is a calculated value of area, in units of acres, based on the area field created by default within the ESRI Polygon data structure. For the purposes of a 'national data layer', the data are to be stored in geographic coordinates which do not correspond to ground values. This requires that there be a standard method for calculating this attribute. The method used for these data are as follows: Project the data into a standard projection such as the ESRI default Albers equal-area projection for the continental United States, "US Albers NAD 1983." (Make sure the area measure of your data is square meters, as opposed to square feet.) Then use the field calculator in ArcMap with the expression: [GIS_ACRES] = [SHAPE_Area] * 0.0002471044. Please note that the figure used in this calculation is the factor for converting the US Survey Foot value from the length of a meter, as opposed to the International Standard for converting meters and feet.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: ADM_UNIT_CD
Attribute Definition: The code that indicates the formal grouping of positions at into designated units and the assignment of functions and responsibilities to those units based on the DOI FPPS structure. The BLM administrative unit/office that is a combination of Administrative State Code and Administrative Office Code that fully identifies the geographic area which has jurisdiction over the lands. This should be the code for the office. This is an eight-character code. In the FMBS Organization Codes, use the last eight characters (e.g. LLAK030900). Attribute Domain Assignment: DOM_ADM_UNIT_CD
Attribute:
Attribute Label: ADMIN_AGCY
Attribute Definition: The official name by which the organization is known. An organization may include businesses, agencies, or corporations, but not individual persons. The initials of the Federal agency which administers the Herd Area. Valid values are BLM or USFS. (Note: While this attribute may contain additional values in other datasets, for this dataset these are the only applicable values.) Attribute Domain Assignment: WHB_DOM_ADMIN_AGCY Default: UNK
Attribute:
Attribute Label: ADMIN_ST
Attribute Definition: Administrative State Code: A two letter, upper case abbreviation for the administrative state office. The current list of values is: AK, AZ, CA, CO, ES, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT and WY. In the FBMS Organization Codes, use the second 2 characters (after the LL). (e.g. LLAK039000). Attribute Domain Assignment: DOM_ADMIN_ST (Logical Attribute: State Alphabetic Code. An alphabetic abbreviation that represents each of the 50 states of the United States, the District of Columbia, the outlying areas of the United States, and associated areas. FIPS PUB 5-2.) An administrative unit that identifies the state or geographic area which has administrative jurisdiction over lands, and cases. The land for a case may not be physically located in the associated administrative state. Only those states that are BLM administrative states are in the domain for this entity. Example: Montana is the Administrative State for public lands in the geographic States of Montana, South and North Dakota.

Attribute:
Attribute Label: HERD_TYPE
Attribute Definition: The name that indicates the type of animal that is being managed. The type of animals historically in the Herd Area. Valid values: HORSE, BURRO, BOTH, UNK. Attribute Domain Assignment: WHB_DOM_HERD_TYPE Default: UNK
Attribute:
Attribute Label: ROD_DT
Attribute Definition: The date on which the decision is signed by the person who has approval authority for the decisions. The format for storing the date field in the geodatabase (GDB) will be MM/DD/YYYY The ESRI software displays the date field according to how dates are formatted for display on the computer. The FGDC-compliant format for the date field, YYYYMMDD, is for publishing/displaying the date field. There are two methods in which the FGDC format could be used for storing the date. The date format on the computer can be reset which may introduce unintended consequences within other programs, or the date field could be defined as a text field which would leave ample room for errors being introduced to the data. Although the National Data Standards are intended to be platform-independent, the ESRI GDB format is the current platform implemented throughout the BLM. Default: 09/09/9999
Attribute:
Attribute Label: BLM_ACRES
Attribute Definition: The amount of acreage in the herd area that is under BLM jurisdiction.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: LUP_ID
Attribute Definition: The designed primary key that will uniquely identify a single occurrence of the entity. The identifier for the Land Use Plan that designated the Herd Management Area.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: Shape.area
Attribute Definition: Feature area.
Attribute:
Attribute Label: Shape.len
Attribute Definition: Feature length.
