How to get KNP census data/population numbers?

Unread postby felicityw » Fri Sep 21, 2012 11:07 pm

I am writing a project about various mammals in Kruger and I desperately require any information about population numbers! Even if it is old! I just need to reference something and after two days searching I have had no luck :cry:

I would be very grateful of any help!

Thank you very much!

Thank you so much! I don't supposed you could tell me how large Kruger is (so far I've found figures of 19400km², 19450km² and 19633km²) or direct me to a report where the size is mentioned?

I would go with the info given here, Felicityw :
(Read Did you know? )
The surface area of Kruger National Park is 7,580 miles² (19,633 km²).

Hi there,

I am doing a postgrad research project on elephant movement patterns in the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, but am having trouble downloading the available shapefiles from the SANParks website:

http://www.sanparks.net/parks/kruger/co ... taview.php

I have installed the cd, as well as the free visual catalogues, but cannot get the shapefiles into a folder for ArcGIS. Does anyone know how to do this? Or has anyone done it already and would be able to send me these shapefiles? Would be much appreciated!

Thanks so much.
