GrSageGrouseBroodArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing areas supporting sage grouse broods. This generally includes wet areas such as meadows, springs, ponds and streams which all function as important brood rearing sites. To be mapped in some areas as a 200m buffer zone around the edges of such wet sites. 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).These data were last updated in 2012.
