Description:
Abstract:
PFAS layers consist of Public Land Survey System (PLSS) data and are primarily Townships and Sections, and can also contain additional features such as special surveys including metes and bounds areas, un-surveyed areas, water, French long lots and Texas Tracts.
Purpose:
This data is loaded in the current NILS PFAS data model to fill in gaps in the BLM data holdings.This data is also used to run the NILS PM create process to create parcels where it was not possible due to missing PLSS GCDB data.
Supplemental_Information:
This layer is a dynamic assembly of spatial data put together from various BLM sources. After a PLSS hierarchy of data sources to use was established, the best known available data from agencies like the US Forest service, Natural Conservation Service, Risk Management Agency, Department of Natural Resources and US Geological Survey was harvested and integrated into this layer.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Every source data went though similar migration processes in order to fit in to the NILS Alternate Source schema. The following sequence of events show a general process taken on each partner agency source data selected for migration:

General Migration Process

1. Filter out brand new partner agency PFAS LD data from existing PLSS and NILS Alternate Source data. 2. Outline a semi-automated workflow for migrating PFAS data using ArcGIS Model Builder. 3. Know the lowest level of data available. 4. Work with the BLM to establish a PLSS hierarchy of data sources to use. 5. Re-project and load the PFAS data sources into the PFAS data model. 6. Add in any missing PFAS attributes (from other sources if necessary, e.g. PLSS_Index/National Atlas was used as a reference for missing Statecodes on source data townships). 7. QA/QC the new data. 8. Obtain list of normal sections from the BLM/LLD tables to subdivide the PFAS data down to minor sub if possible.
