Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
LesserSandhillCraneOverallRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class of Overall Range for Lesser Sandhill Cranes in Colorado. Overall Range is defined as an area below 9500 feet which encompasses all known seasonal activity areas of the Colorado subpopulation of lesser sandhill crane. 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).
