Average Date When Lilacs Bloom in Idaho
Idaho Geospatial Data Clearinghouse

This GIS digital data set portrays the average date when lilacs start bloom in Idaho. Information on dates when plants and animals reach various stages in their development is referred to as phenological data. The purple common lilac (Syringa vulgaris L.) was chosen as the indicator of plant development in western regional phenological studies because it is well adapted and widely distributed throughout the Western United States. Approximately 160 observers scattered throughout Idaho observed the dates of lilac bloom for the 10 years of data used as a base for this study (from 1957 to 1966). Without the unselfish dedication of these volunteers this study would not have been possible.

Fire Restriction Areas
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

The Fire Restriction Areas represents a geographic location with similar timing for weather changes and resulting fire behavior potentials. Boundaries for each area generally follow county boundaries with some being placed along roadways, rivers, hydrologic divides or other known points that can be clearly described to the public and agency personnel. When a majority of land managers and agency administrators representing the jurisdictions within an area agree that the conditions warrant a restriction, the entire area will be placed in a restricted status. When land managers and agency administrators agree that the restrictions for that area can be removed, the entire area will rescind restrictions as a whole.

Greater Sage-grouse Core Areas SW Montana
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Sage-grouse core areas are habitats associated with 1) Montana's highest densities of sage-grouse (25% quartile), based on male counts and/or 2) sage-grouse lek complexes and associated habitat important to sage-grouse distribution.

Greater Sage-Grouse Habitat Management Areas of the Great Basin Region, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) - Administrative Draft Proposed Plan, as updated for inclusion of Sage brush Focal Areas.
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Greater Sage-Grouse Management Areas (habitat) in the Proposed Plan of the Great Basin Region, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) as Priority, Important, and General. Management Areas were delineated by BLM, U.S. Forest Service, State of Idaho and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service based on considerations of sage-grouse occupancy, landscape, habitat and land use/adaptive management opportunities.This data was developed as the Administrative Draft Proposed Plan (ADPP). for the Great Basin Region, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). This layer was edited 5/7/2015 at the WO direction to add three areas of non-habitat in the Sagebrush Focal Areas as PHMA. See procesing steps.Priority Habitat Management Areas (PHMA) have the highest conservation value based on various sage-grouse population and habitat considerations and reflect the most restrictive management designed to promote sage-grouse conservation. Important Habitat Management Areas (IHMA) are closely aligned with PHMA, but management is somewhat less restrictive, providing additional management flexibility. The General Habitat Management Areas (GHMA) designation is the least restrictive due to generally lower occupancy of sage-grouse and more marginal habitat conditions.A decision was made in September 2014 by the Washington Office that all sub-regions would use a consistent naming convention for identifying Habitat Management Areas (HMA). These are Priority Habitat Management Area (PHMA) and General Habitat Management Area (GHMA). The Idaho and Southwestern Montana sub-region has an additional HMA identified as Important Habitat Management Area (IHMA). Attributes in this layer were updated 9/26/2014. Core updated to PHMA, Important updated to IHMA, and General updated to GHMA.The layer was renamed from ManagementZones_Alt_G_05272014_Final to ManagementAreas_Alt_G_05272014_final. The field identifying the Management Areas was renamed from Management_Zone to Habitat_Management_Area.ManagementAreas_Alt_G_05272014_final renamed to Habitat_ADPP on 01212015

This data series contains 22 map layers for the University of Idaho Main Campus Moscow, Idaho. Map layers include building footprints, automobile, motorcycle and bike parking, curbs, land use, pedestrian lights, tree health, walkways, and sidewalk as well as others. Most data are not being updated on a regular basis and are current only to 2005.

Sagebrush Focal Areas 20150501, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Sagebrush Focal Areas (SFAs) are a refinement of Greater Sage Grouse habitat delineating the most valuable habitat to the Greater Sage Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus). They are a subset of the "Highly Important Landscapes" identified by the US Fish and Wildlife Service October, 2014. This dataset is a further refinement of the data layer, "SFA_Draft_January_2015_DIS" released by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Operations Center (NOC) in January, 2015. The SFAs were identified to further protect highly valuable sage grouse habitat and develop conservation strategies as described in the Administrative Draft Proposed Plan (ADPP) for the Idaho and Southwestern Montana Greater Sage Grouse Environmental Impact Statement. Areas within SFAs will be managed as Priority Habitat Management Areas (PHMA) and may include areas of non-habitat. The lineage section describes the processing that was done to the, "SFA_Draft_January_2015_DIS" layer. No SFA was delineated in the SW Montana or USFS Raft River Unit in Utah for the Idaho and SW Montana GRSG Sub-region. Three areas of Non-Habitat managed by the BLM or USFS are included at the direction of the Washington Office. These include an area in and adjacent to the BLM Donkey Hills ACEC, approximately 12,400 acres; 4,900 acres manged by the USFS in the Lost River Range decribed as Borah Peak, and 6,800 acres of USFS manged lands described as Big Flat Top Mountain/ Copper Basin Knob. It does not include all PHMA identified by the Idaho and Southwestern Montana sub-region. It is limited to BLM and USFS managed lands. Within Idaho, areas removed from the original layer provided by the NOC, 842,900 acres75,800 acres BLM Non-Habitat, 61,800 acres within Wilderness Study Areas9,600 acres BLM IHMA (800 in Great Rift WSA, 8,800 east of Creaters NM adjacent to PHMA)1,600 acres BLM GHMA, in the Great Rift and Cedar Butte WSAs300 acres USFS Non-Habitat460,700 acres National Park Service Non-Habitat in Craters of the Moon NM200 acres DOE (INL) PHMA26,200 acres Other Federal Lands PHMA (USDA Sheep Research Station)12,400 acres US Fish and Wildlife Service managed lands Non-Habitat in the Minidoka National Wildlife Refuge300 acres Military Non-Habitat127,200 acres Idaho State lands PHMA2,200 acres Idaho State lands Non-Habitat121,100 acres Private lands in PHMA100 acres in Private IHMA5,100 acres in Private, non-habitat
