Title: Inyo National Forest Range Improvements
Description:
Abstract:
Locations of range improvements such as fences, cattleguards, ponds, and tanks were recorded with a GPS unit.
Purpose:
The purpose of this project is to improve management of the Inyo National Forest. By recording location of range improvements, these data can be imported into a GIS for analysis in relation to other data.
Supplemental_Information:
This is an ongoing project. On any given year not more than 30% of grazing allotments on the Inyo National Forest will be inventoried for the improvements present.

Process_Description:
Data were recorded with a GPS unit. After downloading, data were imported into ArcView to create shapefiles. Shapefiles will be merged. In cases where GPS PDOP was too high, locations were edited based on inspection of Digital Orthophoto Quads
