Wyoming’s Wonderful ASCII Wildlife Maps

Wyoming has done something very cool for wildlife lovers. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department took advantage of their state’s rectangular shape and created ASCII wildlife maps for a report, Atlas of Birds, Mammals, Amphibians, and Reptiles in Wyoming.

Wyomingcame up with these elegant and useful maps by dividing the perfectly rectangular state into latilongs–rectangles that cover an area of one degree of latitude by one degree of longitude. Wyoming has exactly 28 latilongs–seven across and four down.

So if you want to find out if badgers live in your area–or if badgers are very prevalent in Wyoming just look at the handy grid for your section. Laramie, you’re 27. Casper, 19 is your number. And Yellowstone, you are number 1.
