Predicted Terrestrial Vertebrate Species Distributions for Wyoming
Entry ID: wygisc_vertmodel

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The purpose of the vertebrate species maps developed for gap analysis is to
provide more precise information about the current distribution of individual
native species within their general ranges than is generally available from
published range maps. Range maps which rely only on the location of specimens
do not include information on the ecological ... View entire text

Access Constraints Because of the large number of items in this database (445 items for species
and additional items), this database will not import directly into PC Arc/Info.
Indirectly, it can be brought into PC Arc/Info as an ArcView shapefile and
converted with the shapearc command. The IMPORT71 command must be used in order
to bring the complete database into Arcview (IMPORT alone will not import all
the items). Additional attribute files can be accessed in ArcView by adding new
tables in INFO format and accessing these files within the info directory that
is created when the dataset has been imported.
