Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Species Data - Bighorn Sheep Winter Concentration Area
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
BighornWinterConcentration is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing that part of the winter range where animal densities are at least 200% greater than the surrounding winter range density during the same period used to define the winter range, in the average five winters out of ten. 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).
