CanadaGeeseProductionArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Production Areas for Goose species: Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) in Colorado. Production Areas are defines as that part of the overall range that is used by nesting and brooding geese. 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).
