BighornMineralLick is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing specific, natural sites known to be utilized by bighorn sheep for obtaining minerals to meet basic nutritional needs. 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.
