GCWA habitat assessment area data must be submitted either in a GIS polygon shapefile (preferred) or an Excel spreadsheet to illustrate the boundaries of a GCWA habitat assessment or extent of any suitable GCWA habitat that was not surveyed within the habitat assessment area. In most cases, we expect that the boundaries of the area assessed to correspond with the property boundaries. Polygons delineating suitable habitat should only be included in this dataset if they were not surveyed for birds. Report any areas of suitable habitat that were surveyed using the “Golden-cheeked Warbler Survey Area Dataset.” Data must be submitted in accordance with the formatting instructions below. All survey areas for a given survey/reporting year should be submitted as one file per permit. Failure to submit data in accordance with these instructions will be considered an incomplete annual report submission.
