Abstract:
This dataset contains the locations of Florida black bear (Ursus americanus floridanus) roadkills within the state of Florida that are contained in a database maintained by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). In this shapefile, we used only those records maintained by the FWC from which we could obtain a geographic coordinate.
Purpose:
These data display the locations and the associated attributes of black bear roadkills in the state of Florida, from 1976 to 2013.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Quality checked visually for attribute accuracy and consistency by bear-management-program internship volunteers.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Logically consistent. All attribute values fall within defined values
Completeness_Report:
Visually inspected for completeness to ensure all values fell within specified ranges.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The GIS analyst overlaid the remaining point locations onto current roads, counties, and imagery layers. Some locations were not aligned with roads; these were removed from the dataset pending closer examination. All positions recorded from a GPS unit; errors vary depending upon precision and accuracy of each unit.
