The objective of Visual Resource Management (VRM) is to manage public lands in a manner which will protect the quality of the scenic (visual) values of these lands. VRM is a system for minimizing the visual impacts of surface-disturbing activities and maintaining scenic values for the future. Each program involved in resource development work is responsible for protecting visual values. This includes ensuring that (1) personnel in each program who are involved in activities which affect visual values are properly trained in visual management techniques; (2) visual values are adequately considered in all management activities; and (3) adequate guidance and funding is available to accomplish these purposes.

Limitations of use
These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) “as is” and might contain errors or omissions. The User assumes the entire risk associated with its use of these data and bears all responsibility in determining whether these data are fit for the User’s intended use. The information contained in these data is dynamic and may change over time. The data are not better than the sources from which they were derived, and both scale and accuracy may vary across the data set. These data might not have the accuracy, resolution, completeness, timeliness, or other characteristics appropriate for applications that potential users of the data may contemplate. The User is encouraged to carefully consider the content of the metadata file associated with these data. These data are neither legal documents nor land surveys, and must not be used as such. Official records may be referenced at most BLM offices. Please report any errors in the data to the BLM office from which it was obtained. The BLM should be cited as the data source in any products derived from these data. Any Users wishing to modify the data should describe the types of modifications they have performed. The User should not misrepresent the data, nor imply that changes made were approved or endorsed by BLM. This data may be updated by the BLM without notification. (Optional paragraph for additional use constraints, as needed, depending on the data being released. For example: These data were digitized and edited from best available sources at scales ranging from 1:24,000 up to 1:500,000. These data are for general purposes related to Geographic Information System and mapping applications at small to intermediate geographic scales. Users are cautioned that digital enlargement of these data to scales larger than that at which they were originally mapped can cause misinterpretation. Users are further cautioned that these data and interpretations derived from them do not eliminate the need for onsite survey and evaluation of specific sites. OR These data were collected only on those lands managed by the BLM. OR This raptor nest data was collected piece-meal from various small surveys over a 5-year period and do not constitute an intensive survey for nests. Nests might be missing.)
