Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
BWQuailConcentrationArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Concentration Areas for Bobwhite Quail (Colinus virginianus) in Colorado. Concentration Areas are defined as areas within the overall range where densities of Bobwhite Quail are much higher than the surrounding ranges. 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).
