Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Features in spreadsheet with 0 latitude and longitude coordinates were removed from the spatial file. A point in Georgia which had incorrect UTM coordinates was corrected. Records with "Type" = "Injury" were removed from the dataset, and then the "Type" field was also removed.
Process_Date: 201409
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Received panther telemetry database from Panther Team, containing a cumulative table of spatial coordinates of mortality locations since Feb 1972, as well as associated attributes. Isolated present year data, created XY event of the data using a UTM NAD 83 Zone 17 projection. Projected to Modified Florida Albers using the NAD_1983_To_HARN_Florida transformation, appended to existing shapefile using the Data Management Merge tool and updated this metadata record.
