Description:
Abstract: This data set portrays the distribution of 10 selected amphibians in New York State, based on historical literature and museum records from current and historical sources. The amphibians included are northern cricket frog, American toad, Cope's gray treefrog, gray treefrog, eastern newt, eastern red-backed salamander, northern two-lined salamander, mudpuppy, western lesser siren, and spring peeper.
Purpose: These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the national level, and for large regional areas. The data should be displayed and analyzed at scales appropriate for 1:2,000,000-scale data. No responsibility is assumed by the U.S. Geological Survey in the use of these data.
Supplemental_Information: To create maps that are similar to the maps in the National Atlas <http://nationalatlas.gov/natlas/natlasstart.asp>, amphibt.dbf can be joined to the 2000 county boundaries available from the National Atlas download page, <http://nationalatlas.gov/atlasftp.html>.

Process_Step:
Process_Description: The Microsoft Excel97 file, amphibian_data, containing fields for State, county, FIPS code, species status and data source information was received from Ball State University and modified by USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. The file contained information about the distribution of 10 species of amphibians. Amphibian_data was converted to a text file and then into a dBASE IV database which is the format used by the National Atlas of the United States.
Source_Used_Citation_Abbreviation: amphibian_data
Process_Date: 2000
Process_Step:
Process_Description: In order to geoprocess spatial files for New York State from the National Atlas Data for distribution in CUGIR, the nationwide data files were added to a map document in ArcInfo 8.2. Using the geoprocessing wizard's clip function, the spatial files were clipped to the detailed New York polygon.
