Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
MtnGoatConcentrationArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Concentration Areas for Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) in Colorado. Concentration areas are defined as those parts of the overall range where goat densities are at least 200% greater than the surrounding area. 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).
