DescriptionThe Yellow-billed loon Geodatabase is a compilation of Yellow-billed loon observations and survey data. This database is intended to be a qualitative "first look" at where loons have been found and where surveys have been conducted. This dataset is intended for general planning and mapping purposes, it should NOT be used for deriving density estimates. The dataset is available either as an ESRI ArcGIS 10.1 file geodatabase or as a shapefile with associated tables. If you have data you would like to contribute to the Yellow-billed Loon Geodatabase, please contact us at data@arcticlcc.org.

The Yellow-billed Loon Geodatabase is a compilation of yellow-billed loon observation and survey data.  This database is intended to be a qualitative "first look" at where loons have been recorded and where surveys have been conducted.  This dataset is intended for general planning and mapping purposes, it should NOT be used for deriving density estimates.  Users are reminded that these data do not represent all locations within the geographic scope of this database that may be occupied by yellow-billed loons.

In an effort to provide the most comprehensive overview possible, we have incorporated many data sources, representing many different survey methods. When interpreting these data, users are reminded to consider that detectability of loons is a function of many variables, including differences in species, habitat, time-of-year, weather conditions, sun angle, and survey techniques.
Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (Arctic LCC) staff have compiled this dataset to the best of their abilities using the resources available to them. Although the data have been gathered by sources believed to be reliable, Arctic LCC neither verifies nor guarantees the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these data. Arctic LCC shall not be liable for incidental, consequential, or special damages arising out of the use of these data. In addition, the Arctic LCC shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data contained in this database. If you find any errors or omissions, we encourage you to report them to the Arctic LCC data custodian (data@arcticlcc.org).
