Spatial Aspects of Subsistence Harvest
Identifying geographical areas and travel routes within NPRA that are important to our subsistence users by using GPS technology and interviews with hunters.
The objectives of this project are to: Download existing GPSs from active hunters and distribute additional GPS units specifically to gather additional data on travel routes and hunting areas; gather pertinent information to define those geographic areas that are critical to the subsistence-use animals using hunter participation and GPS technologies; develop a GIS database focusing on the spatial distribution aspects of subsistence, which can be used to describe subsistence resources and the patterns of use of subsistence resources, and document areas and routes that are currently used by subsistence hunters and fishers to harvest subsistence resources as baseline information before development occurs in this area. Looking for hunters to participate in this program:
