Title: BLM REA NOS 2012 Alaska Gap Analysis Project Raptor Occurrences in the North Slope study area
Online Linkage: http://akgap.uaa.alaska.edu/
Description:
Abstract: The Alaska Gap Analysis Project distribution models for raptors were of generally of poor quality, as cliff nesting features were not mapped well in the land cover base maps used to generate the distribution models. Therefore, an alternate method of mapping the distribution of raptors is necessary. Alaska Natural Heritage Program compiled 5,166 existing occurrence records for peregrine falcon (n = 2752), gyrfalcon (n = 413), and rough-legged hawk (n = 2001) for the North Slope study area from a variety of data sources. This dataset provides occurrence records of rough-legged hawk, gyrfalcon, and peregrine falcon from the Alaska Gap Analysis occurrence database.
Purpose: This dataset provides occurrences of rough-legged hawk, gyrfalcon, and peregrine falcon from the Alaska Gap Analysis occurrence database. The Alaska Gap Analysis Project occurrence database was used in the development of species distribution models for Alaska.
Supplemental Information: Occurrence records from the Alaska Gap Analysis Project were gathered and used for the purpose of creating vertebrate distribution models for Alaska.

Data Quality Information:
Attribute Value Accuracy Information:
Attribute Accuracy Report: Attribute accuracy varies. Data is submitted from a variety of sources with varying study designs, intents, and detail. Attributes were standardized and quality controlled prior to entry into the Alaska Gap Analysis Project occurrence database.
Logical Consistency Report: Quality control was performed to ensure data accuracy and completeness. Basic checks were performed to ensure integrity and consistency.
Completeness Report: These data are dependent on the research and observations of scientist, land managers and professionals and reflect our current state of knowledge. Many areas are under surveyed, thus absence of data in a given area does not necessarily indicate that species are absent.
Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: No errors in the horizontal positioning of features were identified. However, accuracy varies between occurrences depending on when and how the data was collected.
Positional Accuracy:
Vertical Positional Accuracy:
Vertical Positional Accuracy Report: This dataset does not include a vertical component.
