Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
MtnLionHumanConflictArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Human Conflict for Mountain Lion (Felis concolor) in Colorado. Human Conflict Areas are defined as areas where Mountain Lions have been involved in incidents (conflict with humans that may have serious results), an attack on a human, predation on domestic pets, or depredation on livestock held in close proximity to human habitation. 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).
