Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
CanadaGeeseForagingArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Foraging Areas for Goose species: Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) in Colorado. Foraging Areas are defined as that portion of the winter range where geese move to feed, such as agricultural fields or reservoir shorelines. 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).
