Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
BighornWaterSource is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Water sources known to be utilized by bighorn sheep in dry, water scarce areas. Up to a 1.6km radius should be described around a point source, and up to a 1.6km band be drawn along a river or stream. 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).
