Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Features 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:
Data dated after 2012 are converted to shapefile annually from the panther mortality database. The locations in this shapefile are then appended to the edited, comprehensive shapefile (1972 - 20xx).
