Abstract or Description
This map shows the Moose Management areas in relation to roads and conserved areas. In the Recreation Management Area, hunting and usually viewing opportunities were the most important goals. In the Road Safety Area, reducing the number of moose/ vehicle collisions was the only goal. In the Compromise Management Area, the goal was to balance recreation and safety concerns.
Source Data Note
The Conserved Lands and the Moose Management Areas from the Wildlife Management Districts were obtained using Maine Office of GIS. The US Geological Survey (USGS) digital line graph data was used for hydrography and transportation features. The map is projected using NAD 83, UTM Zone 19N.
