Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Species Data - Elk Production Area
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
ElkProductionArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing elk production areas. This dataset represents that part of the overall range of elk occupied by the females from May 15 to June 15 for calving. Only known areas are mapped and this does not include all production areas for the Data Analysis Unit. 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).
