Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
BTPrairieDogOverallRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing an area which encompasses all known seasonal activity areas within the range of a population of black-tailed prairie dogs. 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).These data are updated as needed and were last updated in 2009.
