PipingPloverProductionArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Production Area, an area that includes nesting habitat and contains one or more active or previously active and aggressively defended territories. 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).
