Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

The Operator Map functions the same as the map found on the PADMS Entry Page. However, the spatial data displayed on the Operator Map is specific to the operator, and the layers can be turned on or off by selecting the check box in the Map Controls box.

...

The BLM Comments section displays comments that only BLM managers may enter per location. These comments are used to provide more detailed information on the location. 

...

  • Enter the name of the location and select the location type from the drop down menu
    • NOTE: if Mat Pad is checked, seeding date fields are not required in the qualitative reports. If Pre-Rod Pad and Federal Surface Site are both cheked checked as Yes then the disturbance and reclamation acreage are not counted in the operator summaries.
  • Select Create to save the location, or select Cancel to terminate the "add new location" process
    • NOTE: A location entered as a Reference Point will populate the Linked Reference Point field for the Frequency and Line-point Intercept data entry page

...

  • From the Operator Summary Page select Upload Spatial Reports. This link is used to batch upload spatial data, and detailed instructions for uploading a batch is in the Batch Uploads section.
  • Select a file to upload, and the system will "read" the data. If there are locations that do NOT exist in the application but are found in the uploaded file, the user will be able to create locations.

...

  • Qualitative Status Reports are NOT uploaded or used for Reference Points
  • Because Reference Location is a required field in the Frequency and Line-point Intercept status reports, a Reference Point must exist in the application before it can be entered into these data forms. If the Reference Point does not exist in the application, an error will be displayed to the user indicating the Reference Point doesn’t exist.
  • When using the batch upload feature to upload Frequency and Line-point Intercept data for a Reference Point, the user must enter the name of the Reference Point in both the Site Name and the Reference Location fields.
  • Reference Points have no spatial data associated with them. The user only needs to enter the latitude and longitude coordinates for the point.
  • Reference Points appear as orange circles on the map
  • Reference Points have an Ecological Site Description (ESD) associated with them. The ESD determines how many sample points must be taken in the Frequency data form for forbs and shrubs.

...

  • If spatial data hasn’t been entered for the location, the user can select the Add a Spatial Report link found in the right corner of the Location Entry Page.
  • Browse and select the zip file for upload
    • NOTE: once Submit is selected it may takea  take a few moments for hte the application to upload the data and verify that it contains no errors
  • If there are multiple SHP files included in the zip file the user will need to select which SHP needs to be uploaded into the system
  • Once the file has been read into the application, the user must then enter a Collection Date and select whether a polygon represents a disturbance or reclamation. . If the new reclamation polygon is known to be smaller than the previous reclamation polygon, select Yes to the corresponding question to allow the polygon to be uploaded without issue.
  • Select Save, or select cancel to stop the process, or go back to the list of SHP files to pick a different one
