Since 1997, St. John's Abbey Arboretum has collected data on deer harvested in each district, but that data has never been aggregated and mapped. With the help of John Geissler's data that has been through the years, deer harvesting will be mapped by district, including age and sex information. By examining shapefiles of the districts and adding each yearly excel data by spatial joins, the deer population will be presented through graduated colors. John Geissler and hunters will be informed which districts are more likely to contain deer.
