Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
MtnGoatProductionArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Production Areas for Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) in Colorado. Production Areas are defined as that part of the home range of a species occupied by females during a specific period of Spring. This period is May 15 to June 30 for Mountain Goats. 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).
