Benefits are therefore situational, establishing a need for evaluation of water use in varied settings. We used global-positioning-system (GPS) collars and time-lapse videography to estimate the distribution of elk (Cervus elaphus) activity and frequency of water-development use at Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota, during June–September, 2003–2006.
