It provides geographical and historical information to show distribution
over space and time. The reports come primarily from State agencies in the region. These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the
national level, and for large regional areas. Sightings were reported with varying levels of accuracy.
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. Acknowledgment of the U.S. Geological Survey would be appreciated in products derived
