Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
PheasantConcentrationArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Concentration Areas for Ring-neck Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) in Colorado. Concentration Areas are defined as those areas within the overall range where pheasant densities are at least 200% greater than in the surrounding overall 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).
