MetadataShow full item record
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.
