GIS data on Big Bend
« on: April 26, 2007, 07:19:46 PM »
I'm a student at the University of Texas working on the black-capped vireo, an endangered bird. Can anyone send me the e-mail address or contact information for the GIS specialist on the Big Bend National Park staff? I heard that Betty Alex used to be responsible for this, but I don't know if she still is. Thanks in advance.

Here is a hard-to-find link to actual data in the form of shapefile and raster.  You'll need GIS software to use most of this but its very useful.

And here is the contact info listed on the data site:
