Fish and Wildlife Observation
The Fish and Wildlife Observation feature class represents observations of aquatic and terrestrial animals made by sight, sound, and other detection methods. It includes locations where animals were found. It does not include surveyed places where the animal was looked for and not found. Data originated primarily from the NRIS Wildlife and Aquatic Surveys applications. The feature class includes the observation location on land or water and the attributes defined in this document. Please note that all listed status fields are dependent on FS units having entered status information into the NRIS TAXA application. A null value does not necessarily indicate an unlisted status.
