Abstract
Yellowstone National Park experienced seven bear maulings -- including one fatality -- between 2005 and summer 2011. The author obtained GPS coordinates of the attacks and mapped them using ArcGIS software. The map revealed a concentration of bear-related injuries between Old Faithful geyser and Yellowstone Lake. The author surmised that the influx of visitors to these landmarks increased the likelihood of bear encounters.
Description
The project was completed as part of LIS 875: GIS in Libraries at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
