- Species Diversity
We are assessing the state ranks (SRank) for various species to include in the upcoming State Wildlife Action Plan. Listed below is a list of birds where we could use additional information. Please feel free to submit your entire dataset if it includes multiple species beyond this list.

Need to update a path in your ArcMap project to reflect the new location? Here's how...
There are several methods for updating data sources using arcpy.mapping, check out this help topic from ESRI. The example listed below is just one of several methods.
Attach the following python code to a script in the toolbox of the mxd you wish to update. This will allow you to update the directory the data layer is referencing, but will NOT allow you to change the data layer source name itself. To change the data layer source name use the 'replaceDataSource' method instead.
mapdoc = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")
mapdoc.findAndReplaceWorkspacePaths("<the directory you are changing from>" , "<the directory you are changing to>")
TIPS / Notes:
--You could get fancy and set the 'directory you are changing from' and the 'directory you are changing to' to input arguments. Then, the script could be used for resetting any project.
--If you don't know the directories your data are referencing you can insert print lyr.dataSource. This will return a list of data sources used in the mxd.
--If you know you have broken links in your mxd, here's how to get a list printed to the python shell window.
mapdoc = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")
brokenlist = arcpy.mapping.ListBrokenDataSources(mapdoc)
for lyr in brokenlist:

New in 10.1!
Tired of scrolling through all the possible projections when you only use about 3 or 4 of them? In ArcGIS 10.1 you can now save commonly used projections as a ‘favorite’.
Next time you are specifing a projection for a dataset you can mark the projection as a 'favorite' by simply clicking the 'star icon' in the top right corner of the dialog box.
Next time you need to specify that projection, simply look for it within the 'favorites' section.

Here's a couple general tips and tricks when using a webmap created using ArcGIS Viewer for Flex
- The more you utilize the map data viewer, the refresh and drawing time will decrease. Your computer’s web browser will cache some of the data so next time you draw that area it should perform quicker.
- Zoom into an area of interest before you check the data layers for display.
- Only choose 4 or 5 data layers to display at any one time. Displaying all the layers at once will tend to slow down the refresh time.
- Pressing F5 will zoom to the original extent as when initially opened and refresh all the layers.
