BISO Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area Appalachian Highlands Network Southeast Region Can Be Started, Not GPRA Complete yes 2016 2016 2014-0930: TNGS submitted Barthell SW 7.5' but not sure we received all necessary GIS files as part of package; needs followup and verificiation….__2014-0414: TN GS is contracted to fill in gaps; hope for delivery in 2016….2013-1230: received Oneida North data from TNGS Albert Horton via ftp and email…some files missing that show in MXD….will pursue obtaining zip of all GIS data….2013-0905: Bruce Heise says to expect Oneida North in 2014 but Barthell SW and Sharp Place by TNGS not until 2016……..added few KY GS gmaps digital to gmap db today for Corbin 30x60 pub…need to get GIS files and see about GPRA completing BISO for quads just intersecting park……2013-0506: received GIS data for Honey Creek (75621), Oneida South (75619), Rugby (75622), Stockton (75620) 7.5' quads from TNGS Ron Clendening; needs evaluated and assessed for BISO project…….2012-1211: sent email to Ron Clendening at TN GS requesting GIS files of 3 new 7.5"s of Honey Creek, Stockton, Rugby quads…awaiting delivery from Ron……. 2011-0914: need update from Heather Stanton on any progress made to date with GRI map for BISO-OBRI…..2011-0202: Bruce Heise says earliest is 2014 for GRI mapping completion based upon working with TNGS………MULTI-STATE ISSUES……2010-1115: changed to "CBS,NGC" to reflect work that can be done converting KYGS data and digitizing TN GS data……2010-0902: 2010-0428: Heise and Connors spoke with Mike Hoyal (TNGS) about their STATEMAP activities in BISO qoi's for Scotckton and Honey Creek. Discussed possibllity of supporting total of 7 quads for both BISO and OBRI in the future. Needs follow-up and would likely only be for quads intersecting park boundraies……..2010-0112: have digital for all of KY portion; Ron Corneilisu supplied desired interest in coverage up to watershed boundary for both BISO and OBRI. 2008-0104: follow scoping summary and should treat BISO-OBRI as single project from watershed perspective; during scoping assigned "yes & no" to summary table and need to base scoping summary on that discussion; much digital for KY portion, but TN portion has many holes that may still need mapped and existing maps are NOT digital yet, so we'll need to digitize all of them.. Corbin, KY 30x60 (GMAP 74714) gives all of KY BISO portion digitally, but is mostly bedrock; is likely taken from 24k digital, but verify with KYGS. Tim sent note to TNGS asking about obtaining Stockton, Robbins, Rugby, Gobey, Lancing "prelimnary" compilations, and also asked about status of Isoline, Fox Creek, Hebbertsburg 7.5's which on their status map show as complete, but cannot find references anywhere for any of these; awaiting response. Also want to somehow incorporate the SIDs of all of the landslide USGS of maps; awaiting arrival of Chattanooga 1x2 individual 7.5's from USGS map sales as well; Georgia Hybels following up on it.

BLRI Blue Ridge Parkway Appalachian Highlands Network Southeast Region Can Be Started, Not GPRA Complete yes 2015 2015 2014-0414: still expect USGS delivery this FY but not sure we'll have time to turn it around......2013-1120: call with Mark Carter (USGS) says it NOT likely to be completed before end of FY2014….2013-1112: Bruce Heise says USGS will be delivering in FY 2014; Mark Carter would like call to discuss how we want data delivered…….2013-0501: backed out to 2014…..2011-0202: Bruce says USGS will delvier VA portion in 2013 so earliest GRI completion in 2013……MULTI-STATE ISSUES……2010-1115: changed to "CBS,NGC" to reflect work that can be done converting NC portion of BLRI for GRI workload….2009-0908: Bruce Heise mentione that Mark Carter has joined USGS and will be mapping VA portion of BLRI for them…..need more details and potential delivery dates……2007-1203: NCGS has sent new package to evaluate (filed as GMAP 4160; 2007 BRP) for NC portion of BLRI; is closely tied to CARL too. Have GIS & PDF information (~2.3GB). VA portion needs scoped / assessed still, but might be able to use GMAP 4301 (USGS wri-84-4168). Need to finalize plans for this park with Bruce. There was talk of USGS wanting to do VA portion; need update. Image
BUFF Buffalo National River Heartland Network Midwest Region Can Be Started, Not GPRA Complete yes 2015 2015 2014-1119: have new USGS SIM-3314 (GMAP 75962) for conversion summarizing all USGS work in this area; need to edge match with AR GS stuff too; heise email of 11/5 says the following related to this: "This announcement just came in to my email, it's the most recent iteration of the work that Mark has been doing in the park. While some of this is a compilation of his previous work, there is a whole lot of new mapping and/or digital conversions of older, paper maps. In particular all of the new mapping of terrace deposits is captured on this map. Just wanted you to know this was available, Mark will probably be contacting you as well. Another huge step towards the entire park having a state of the art product and great work by Mark. He is still working on those two, western quads and Angela is back in there mapping the terraces in those areas the AGS was responsible for. Our Inventory will wait until everything is completed before we covert it into the NPS data model and deliver it to you but I thought you might be interested in seeing this new version. Very cool, and a great example of NPS/USGS/AGS collaborative efforts."____……2014-0414: BUFF Chuck Bitting has requested additional mapping related to hog farm issues affecting watershed….need to id those quads and areas….has also requeste AR GS map river terraces identified by USGS in Arkansas portion…..$3800 for field expenses desired……2012-0925: have recently received GIS for Buffalo City and Big Flat from AR GS as well as paper copies of Cozahome and Rea Valley from them too…need GIS for latter two still……….. This project is still awaiting a few pieces from USGS to complete and then needs all edge-matched too……2012-0716: Hello Tim, I will send revised shapefiles (actually I can email them to you) for the Buffalo City and Big Flat quadrangles once we get the quads edge-matched to the Rea Valley and Cozahome. Hope all is well with yours. Angela Chandler2011-1026: won't get USGS final deliverables until 20142011-0906: need to update MXD to show Big Flat, Buffalo City, Maumee 7.5's for sure……looks like Rea valley, Cozahome, Murray and Osage SW are only outstanding 7.5' QOI's still….2011-0202: changing projection for earliest completion in 2012…..2010-1119: located Maumee 7.5' completed by USGS; need to add into MXD and queue………2010-1115: changed to "CBS,NGC" to reflect work that can be done converting USGS and AR GS existing publications for BUFF…. A few outstanding quads still tho….2010-0527: Tim spent day 5/25 updating gmap status; found 3 new 7.5' quads by AR GS online for Landis, Marshall, and Harriet 7.5's; all are PDFs online and GRI received GIS for these back in 2008… Chuck Bitting email of 5/26 says Cozahome, Big Flat, Rea Valley, Buffalo City all under way by ARGS and he may asssist in wilderness mapping. For Maumee, Osage SW and Murray need updates from both AR GS and USGS. Also, need to verify that existing GIS coverages of all held gmaps are latest and greatest too before proceeding. Need to review BUFF supplied watershed boundary as well for coverage…..2009-0902. St. Joe 7.5' is most recent; need to add to MXD (GMAP 75172); still seem to need intersecting 7.5's for Buffalo City, Rea Valley, Maumee, Big Flat, Cozahome and Marshall for full park proper coverage though; need to determine who is supplying these (USGS or AR GS)…..2007-1204: follow scoping summary, but remember GRE trying to get agreement with AR GS for some mapping/digital work, so need to have current status of this from Bruce Heise first before proceeding. Have numerous 7.5' qois for BUFF already available and digital. Image
CHCH Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park Cumberland Piedmont Network Southeast Region Can Be Started, Not GPRA Complete yes 2015 2015 2014-0414: backed out to 2015…Need portions of 3 7.5' quads in Georgia to complete CHCH….. Not sure where to go for it though….2013-0501: backed out to 2014; need mapping plan for GA portion….2012-1211: backed out to 2013 earliest…..2012-0719: have paper copy now of Hamiltion County map to evaluate for completing park……2012-0109: Connors would like to evaluate possibility of using old USGS folios for Chattanooga (GMAP 2448) and Ringgold (8925) to GPRA complete park……needs discussed,,,,2011-0208: need mapping plan so changing projection for earliest completion to 2014 and to "not started" based upon no large-scale mapping for GA portion; need mapping plan with GA GS……2010-1115: changed to "CBS,NGC" to reflect work that can be done converting or digitizing some existing TN stuff for CHCH…..2009-1207: have 2 QOIs in TN to convert from TNGS for Chattanooga (GMAP 68253) and East Chattanooga (GMAP 68296) but need plan for Alabama and Georgia portions……sent note to Mike Hoyal asking for details on unknown Hamilton Co map by Milici mentioned during scoping…from scoping summary….Map coverage is available at the 1:24,000 scale for some of the areas of interest for Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park (Chattanooga, TN; East Chattanooga; Ft. Oglethorpe [TN portion] quadrangles). Coverage for the Wauhatchie quadrangle may be available as part of a student dissertation from the University of Tennessee. GRI mapping team needs to acquire a geologic map of Hamilton County, Tennessee by Milici et al. 1979 at 1:48,000 scale. Some 1:62,500 coverage exists for the area on county-based maps, but is likely not detailed enough for the park’s resource management use. Persistent mapping needs in Tennessee and Georgia covering the quadrangles of interest may be a target for an EDMAP project (Ft. Oglethorpe [GA portion]; Hooker, GA; Wauhatchie; East Ridge; and Ringgold, GA quadrangles). Meeting participants suggested there might be difficulties resolving geologic units across state boundaries. Park staff requested additional mapping of quarries located on the Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge battlefields used for the construction of memorials and monument bases. Image
