Mineral Licks are defined as specific natural sites known to be utilized as lick areas by Mountain Goats. 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). Dataset was acquired from a third party distributor who obtained it from CDOW in January 2011. The...

This data set represents the 2010 mountain goat seasonal range boundaries for Wyoming. Seasonal range delineations depict lands that are important in each season for certain biological processes within a herd unit. Seasonal range boundaries are based on long-term observation data, specific research projects, and professional judgement. Ranges are digitized at a scale of 1:100,000 using USGS 1:100,000 DRGs as a backdrop for heads up digitizing, and are revised as needed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Current seasonal range definitions are based on a 1990 document drafted by the Wyoming Chapter of The Wildlife Society in cooperation with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and federal land agencies.

MtnGoatProductionArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Production Areas for Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) in Colorado. Production Areas are defined as that part of the home range of a species occupied by females during a specific period of Spring. This period is May 15 to June 30 for Mountain Goats. 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). Dataset was acquired from a...

Establishing connections among natural landscapes is the most frequently recommended strategy for adapting management of natural resources in response to climate change. The U.S. Northern Rockies still support a full suite of native wildlife, and survival of these populations depends on connected landscapes. Connected landscapes support current migration and dispersal as well as future shifts in species ranges that will be necessary for species to adapt to our changing climate. Working in partnership with state and federal resource managers and private land trusts, we sought to: 1) understand how future climate change may alter habitat composition of landscapes expected to serve as important connections for wildlife,...

MtnGoatWinterRange is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing the Winter Range for Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) in Colorado. Winter Range is defined as that part of the overall range of Mountain Goats where 90% of individuals are located during the average five winters out of ten from the first heavy snowfall to Spring green-up or during a site-specific period of winter as defined for each management unit. 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....

Data was acquired during aerial surveys conducted by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) between 1993 and 2007. The aerial surveys were conducted annually to count and classify mountain in the area. Data are used by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) in their management responsibilities to set hunting seasons, determine population trends, and identify critical habitats. Observations were recorded on data forms and locations either plotted on USFS Maps (Deerlodge National Forest) or recorded by specific location. The data represents observations of mountain goats. It is not intended to represent overall or annual distribution. Each individual observation represents one or more animals. Density of observations...

MtnGoatConcentrationArea is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Concentration Areas for Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) in Colorado. Concentration areas are defined as those parts of the overall range where goat densities are at least 200% greater than the surrounding area. 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). Dataset was acquired from a third party distributor who obtained...

This layer does not include overall distribution or winter range within Tribal lands/Indian Reservations or National Park Service lands. Overall distribution polygons represent general or year round habitat. Winter range polygons represent areas occupied by the species from November 15 to March 1. Not all polygons in this coverage represent overall distribution and/or winter range. The polygon attribute to select overall distribution and/or winter range areas for mountain goat is USE.

This information was derived from the 1:24,000 scale Digital Rastor Graphics (DRG's). Data were digitized on-screen using the Arc/Info module to create a Mountain Goat Hunting Unit polygon coverage. Where available, coincident lines were use from other available data. If these data were available but not at 1:24,000 scale or better, digitizing was done directly from the DRG, with the exception of Hydro Unit (HUC) boundaries, which were pulled from the Division's HUC coverages. Digitizing and attributing were done by the Wildlife GIS Group of the Colorado Division of Wildlife. Label points have multiple attributes and linear features are attributed with the feature name that makes up that portion of the GMU boundary.
