Use limitations

The GIS files and their associated coordinates are not the legal source for determining the critical habitat boundaries of species described in this dataset, but are used to identify areas which contain the physical and biological features essential to the conservation of the species or areas otherwise determined to be essential. Inherent in any dataset used to develop graphical representations, are limitations of accuracy as determined, among others, the source, scale and resolution of the data. While the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service makes every effort to represent the critical habitat shown with data as completely and accurately as possible (given existing time and resource constraints), the USFWS gives no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these data. In addition, the USFWS shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data described and/or contained herein. Graphical representations provided by the use of these data do not represent a legal description of the critical habitat boundary. The user is referred to the critical habitat textual description in the appropriate final rule for this species as published in the Federal Register. These data are to be used only in the context of the definition and purpose of critical habitat. This primarily relates to Section 7 consultation under the Endangered Species Act. These data may be used for planning and land management purposes. They are not to be used for legal survey use.

Description
We considered several quantitative and qualitative criteria in the selection and proposal of specific areas or units for San Bernardino kangaroo rat critical habitat. These criteria primarily focused on: (1) lands considered to be occupied: lands within identified major population areas with confirmed recent (since 1985) San Bernardino kangaroo rat locations and that contain essential habitat complexes, and (2) lands not known to be occupied that contain confirmed historic San Bernardino kangaroo rat locations or essential habitat, and are contiguous with occupied lands. Critical habitat for the San Bernardino kangaroo rat was delineated based on interpretationof multiple data sources available during the preparation of this rule, including confirmed San Bernardino kangaroo rat observation and collection records, one-meter digital orthorectified quadrangle (DOQ) aerial photography at 1:24,000 scale (comparable to the scale of a 7.5 minute U.S. Geological Survey topographic quadrangle map) acquired during 2001, boundaries of approved habitat conservation plans (HCP), updated classified vegetation maps, and projects authorized for take through section 7 consultations. These lands define specific map units, i.e. Critical Habitat Units. For the purpose of this determination these Critical Habitat Units have been described using Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) North American Datum of 1927 (NAD27) coordinates derived from a digitized line using the DOQ as a backdrop. In most cases, habitat boundaries were identified on the DOQ by levee, urban edge, highway, agricultural field, and vegetation type. In defining critical habitat boundaries, we made an effort to avoid: (1) developed lands such as towns and agricultural fields, (2) other non-habitat lands that do not contain one or more primary constituent elements of San Bernardino kangaroo rat habitat, (3) non-essential habitat lands that may contain San Bernardino kangaroo rat habitat features, but are too isolated or fragmented to provide for long-term conservation of populations. The minimum mapping unit used to approximate our delineation of critical habitat for the San Bernardino kangaroo rat is at a higher resolution than recommended by National Map Accuracy Standards but should not suggest an increased accuracy in our mapping the designated critical habitat boundaries. Existing features and structures within the boundaries of the mapped units, such as buildings, portions of paved or improved roads, aquaducts, railroads, other paved areas, lawns, and other urban landscaped areas do not contain the primary constituent elements for San Bernardino kangaroo rat. Federal actions limited to those areas, therefore, would not trigger a section 7 consultation, unless they affect the species and/or primary constituent elements in adjacent critical habitat. Initial polygons were created using the process described above. Edits based on staff biological input to include essential habitat and eliminate non-habitat areas, and to eliminate as much urban and agriculture as visually possible within or adjacent to the target area was completed in this release. Polygon edits were accomplished using heads-up digitizing from 2001, 1:24,000 scale, 1-meter resolution DOQs.
