NM_LandOwner_All_Boundaries.shp

Data format: ArcInfo Coverage

File or table name: nm_own

Coordinate system: Universal Transverse Mercator

Theme keywords: surface, ownership

Abstract: This data has been collected by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in New Mexico at both the New Mexico State Office and the various field offices. Collection began in the 1980's using the BLM's ADS software to digitize information at the 1:24,000 scale. In the mid to late 1990's the data was converted from ADS to ArcInfo software. Collection continued into the 1990s and has been updated regularly until January 2000 when it was merged into a statewide coverage. Surface ownership data is generally digitized from 1:24,000 USGS quads or onscreen digitized using the BLM's Master Title Plats as the original data source. It has been snapped to Public Land Survey System (PLSS) and Geographic Coordinate Data Base (GCDB) data where appropriate. This version reflects the latest updates maintained in the 64 100k ownership tiles for NM, which are updated as necessary. Note for Shapefiles: Shapefiles have been created from coverages using the "Export Coverage to Shapefile" function in ArcGIS 8.3. All occurrences of "#" and "-" in INFO item names are replaced with an underscore character. This includes COVER# and COVER-ID, which become "COVER_" and "COVER_ID". Additionally, the Shapefile format only allows 10 characters in item names, so long item names are truncated. To avoid duplicate names, the items are truncated and assigned consecutive numbers. For example, in a coverage called CITY_STREET the items "CITY_STREET#" and "CITY_STREET-ID" become "CITY_STRE" and "CITY_STR_1" .

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Purpose:
To provide a current delineation of the surface ownership for the state of New Mexico.
