Source_Contribution:
Management area delineation for forest planning occurs at a broad, landscape scale.  This is an iterative process that uses a variety of spatial data of varying accuracy and precision, and incorporates goals, objectives, science, changed conditions, public input, and professional judgment.  A variety of methodologies, criteria, information and the best available data are used to determine the best placement of boundaries to meet the intent of the management area.  Existing congressionally and administratively designated area boundaries did not change from the 1986 Forest Plan.
