ElkOverallRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class depicting Overall Range for Elk in Colorado. Overall Range is defined as the area which encompasses all known activity areas within the observed range of an elk population. 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).
