TurkeyProductionArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Production Areas for Wild Turkey (Melagris gallopavo) in Colorado. Production Areas are defined as those areas that are used by turkeys for nesting during the period from March 15 to August 15. 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).
