Description:
Abstract:
Prairie dog towns were located for the Pinedale BLM Field
Office by two different consultants in 1995, 1997 and 1998.
Purpose:
Prairie dog town locations were collected to aid natural
resource managers in making decisions affecting public
lands. Status Species:
The USFWS has listed the Black-Footed Ferret. The Black
Footed Ferret is closely tied to prairie dog towns as they
serve as a food source. Prairie dog towns were surveyed in
response to proposed oil and gas development activity. If
proposed oil and gas activities occur in or near these
areas, black footed ferret surveys of the prairie dog
colony/complex will be conducted in accordance with USFWS
guidelines and requirements.

Process_Description:
Two sources recorded the prairie dog locations. Anderson
Consulting performed surveys for the Jonah II field in 1995
. Digital information was provided by PIC Technologies from
1997 and 1998 surveys in the Pinedale Anticline. Dog towns
in the Jonah II field were drawn on paper copies of 7.5
minute quads in the report. These polygons were digitized
by SDVC personnel (Feb, 1999) on-screen using ArcView and
the USGS 7.5 minute digital raster graphics of the
topographic maps. Accuracy is (+/- 40 feet). This was
estimated by comparing topographic features on the paper
maps with the digital maps.
