Description:
BighornSummerRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Summer Range for Bighorn Sheep in Colorado. Summer Range is defined as that portion of the overall range where 90% of the individuals are located between spring green-up and the first heavy snowfall. Summer range is not exclusive of winter range; in some areas winter and summer ranges may overlap. This information was derived from field personnel. A variety of data capture techniques were used including drawing on mylar overlays at 1:50,000 scale USGS county mapsheets and implementation of the SmartBoard Interactive Whiteboard using stand-up, real-time digitizing at various scales (Cowardin, M., M. Flenner. March 2003. Maximizing Mapping Resources. GeoWorld 16(3):32-35).
