Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Richard Hudson, Tina Sanchez, Tina Sanchez
The Mobile County Environmental Services Department is conducting a “total count” survey of the threatened and endangered gopher tortoise population for a forested 700-acre reservation in northern Mobile County.
The survey is based on an ESRI/Trimble solution. This presentation will describe how ArcGIS, ArcPad, and Trimble units were used for collecting field data, evaluating accuracies, analyzing results, and guiding management activities for Conservation Areas in Mobile County Alabama.
