User's Guide to the Map Gallery 

Welcome to the Narragansett Bay Coyote Study Map Gallery. The gallery provides a unique online opportunity for teachers, students, and anyone else with an interest in the NBCS to explore the wealth of information that has been already been collected in this ground-breaking project. The gallery reveals the power of geographic information systems (GIS) to enable us to analyze information spatially! By mapping coyote locations on a 24 hour basis we can see patterns that inform us about the movements, diet, habitats, and activities of this sometimes controversial member of our Rhode Island family. The data collected in this study allow those responsible for wildlife management as well as ordinary Rhode Island citizens to make informed decisions about how to safely share our world with this fascinating animal.

 What’s in the Map Gallery?
