Distribution maps of fishes in California
"The following list of fish species and their reported distributional ranges in California were compiled by Dr. Peter Moyle and his graduate student Paul Randall of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation Biology at UC Davis for the Nature Conservancy as part of their Hexagon Project. Fish were mapped at the species level; subspecies were grouped into their respective species level. Present rather than historical distributions were mapped. ... The fish distribution data were graphically displayed on paper maps which were then used to create larger polygons showing species distributions at either the "probable" or "possible" levels of confidence. These polygons were initially drawn on paper maps (roughly 11 in. x 17 in.) which included locations of fish occurrences from all digital databases possessed, and GIS layers for hydrology (1:500,000 scale) and the state boundary (1:100,000 scale). The boundaries of the fish range polygons were drawn on paper by Professor Peter Moyle and then digitized on the computer screen by Paul Randall using ARC/INFO GIS software. The resultant polygons are estimated to be accurate at a scale of roughly 1:1,000,000."

Examples of geospatial data include soils, boundaries, volcanoes, and principal aquifers. Crime patterns, population distribution, and incidence of disease are examples of geostatistical data. This information is tied to specific geographic areas and is categorized and indexed using different methods, such as county, State, and zip code boundaries or geographic coordinates like latitude and longitude. These data will be collected and integrated to a consistent set of standards to support analysis. The atlas will also include easy-to use software for data display, query, and custom information and map making. The product will include hot links to atlas sites on the WWW. More up-to-date, real-time, and regional data will be served by means of the WWW.
