GunnSageGrouseOverallRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class that shows the overall range of Gunnison's Sage Grouse (Centrocercus minimus) in Colorado. Overall Range is defined as an area that encompasses all mapped seasonal activity areas within the observed range of a population of Gunnison's Sage 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).These data were last updated in 2018.
