Use_Constraints:
Comparison with other data sets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting from changes in photo interpretation, rounding of decimal coordinates during conversion, and mapping conventions over time. Any hardcopies utilizing these data sets shall clearly indicate their source. If the user has modified the data in any way, they are obligated to describe the types of modifications they have performed on the hardcopy map. The user specifically agrees not to misrepresent these data sets, nor to imply that changes made were approved by the USFS.

Other_Citation_Details:
Allotment and pasture boundaries were initially delineated on aerial photos. Features were then transferred using a Map-o-Graph machine from aerial photos to create 2" to the mile range improvement maps. Later this information was transferred to 1:24,000 Primary Base Series paper quad maps. Data was originally inputted from these paper quads using a digitizing tablet and LIDES from 1987 to 1990 and then transferred to MOSS GIS. Then in 1998, the GIS data was converted from MOSS to ArcInfo. Updates to the coverage were made as needed until it was sent to TVA in 2001.

Cartographic Feature Files (CFFs) are digital files containing a vector representation of the point and line features shown on a Forest Service Primary Base Series (PBS) map. CFF data are collected by digitizing PBS maps and revised using correction guide information provided by field units. GSTC began producing Vintage 11 CFFs for Region 3 in 1999.
