Title: Oregon Stewardship Geodatabase - 2015
Publication Date: 20151102
Abstract: This data layer is an element of the Oregon GIS Framework. The Oregon Biodiversity Information Center (ORBIC), part of the Institute for Natural Resources (INR) within the Oregon University System, has been the steward of Oregon’s protected areas data since 1989. This data is incorporated into the NavigatOR GIS utility and the national US protected areas database maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. New data in Oregon on conservation easements and newly developed protected area maps from local land trusts and County and City governments were incorporated in 2011-2013. The result is a very comprehensive map and protected areas database for Oregon. Updates and edits will continue to be made to improve the dataset.
Purpose: Provides land stewardship data (ownership, management, and easements) with a focus on natural protected areas following the standards of the USGS Protected Areas Database-US program.

Use: This geodatabase represents the most recent Oregon version of the protected areas database, which will be submitted to the USGS PADUS program for upload to their site. PADUS will modify this geodatabase by removing the Oregon-specific fields and making additonal edits according to the national PADUS standards and procedures. Modifications made by the USGS will be incorprated into the Oregon stewardship database as needed when new versions are released. It is important to keep this in mind when comparing the two datasets.Please view the use limitations associated with the individual feature classes for additional guidelines.
