Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
TurkeyWinterConcentrationArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing winter concentration areas for Wild Turkey (Melagris gallopavo) in Colorado. Winter Concentration Areas are defined as that part of the winter range where population densities are at least 200% greater than the surrounding winter range density. 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).
