Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Species Data - Mountain Lion Peripheral Range
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
MtnLionPeripheralRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Peripheral Range for Mountain Lion (Felis concolor) in Colorado. Peripheral Range is defined as an area of Mountain Lion overall range where habitat is limited and populations are isolated. Population density may be lower than in the central part of their range. 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).
