TurkeyOverallRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing the overall range for Wild Turkey (Melagris gallopavo) in Colorado. Overall Range is defined as that area which encompasses all known seasonal activity within the observed range of a population of Wild Turkeys. 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).
