Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
CSTGrouseOverallRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing overall range for Columbian Sharp-tailed Grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus columbianus) in Colorado. Overall Range is defined as an area that encompasses all mapped seasonal activity areas within the observed range of a population of Columbian Sharp-tailed Grouse. 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).
