Abstract:
Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area (NSA) boundary developed from the NSA Boundary Legal Description project. USFS surveyors developed this line from the "Official" NSA maps and placed Angle Points.
Purpose:
Intended as a GIS "Representation" of the NSA Boundary. The National Scenic Area boundary is a management boundary and should not be used to determine lines of title. This document is intended as a tool for planners and surveyors in interpreting the lines depicted on the initial maps on file with the Chief of the USDA Forest Service.
Supplemental_Information:
The legal description of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is as determined by Public Law 99-663 dated September 1986 and shown on maps on file with the Chief of the USDA Forest Service. Copies of these maps, copies of the congressional working maps, and USGS digital raster graphic quads were used to determine the map boundaries identified in the legal description written under contract 53-04H1-7-83610. Where the boundary is described as following a topographical feature, the actual location of the feature will control the approximate course identifying that part of the boundary. Unless specifically identified, calls to streams shall be to thread and calls to a ridge will be to the crest. Section, Township, Range lines and Section corners established by the United States Public Land Survey shall determine the actual location of these portions of the boundary so described. Section subdivision lines and corners will be established under the rules of the Unites States Public Land Survey system. The coordinate data base for the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Boundary description was collected from USGS Digital Raster Graphic quads in UTM NAD27 coordinates. The numbers were then processed using Traverse PC software to determine courses and distances. This is the information used to publish the metes and bounds description. Corpscon software is suggested for conversion to State Plane Grid coordinates. Excel spreadsheets for Oregon and Washington contain the written description for the boundary. The National Scenic Area boundary is a management boundary and should not be used to determine lines of title. This document is intended as a tool for planners and surveyors to interpreting the lines depicted on the initial maps on file with the Chief of the USDA Forest Service. On November 14, 2005 A Congressionally mandated change was made to the west boundary in T1N R4E Sec 16 and 21 as called for in 16 U.S.C. Sec. 544b(a)(2)(B). Clark County Taxlot boundaries from July 2005, along with maps accompanying the CRGC Staff report dated March 25, 1993 were used as the base layers for digitizing the change.
