Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Species Data - Mule Deer Resident Population Area
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
MuleDeerResidentPopulationArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing an area that provides year-round range for a population of mule deer. The resident mule deer use all of the area all year; it cannot be subdivided into seasonal ranges although it may be included within the overall range of the larger 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).
