The Nanwenghe National Nature Reserve is located at the southern foot of Yilehuli Mountain in the Great Khingan Mountains, between 51°05′07″N and 51°39′24″N, 125°07′55″E and 125°50′05″E, with a total area of 2,283.24 km². In the reserve, the distribution core area of moose is 542.48 km². The survey was carried out from March 24 to April 1, 2022. Based on the fixed wing UAV platform, the author investigated the population number of moose in Nanwenghe National Nature Reserve in Heilongjiang Province. 17,818 UAV aerial images were obtained, and the effective area of the spliced digital orthophoto map reached 206.9 km². Then the Moose’s populated places were interpreted. The dataset includes: (1) boundary data of the protected area and the distribution core area of moose; (2) Moose’s populated places data. The dataset is archived in .shp format, and consists of 21 files with data size of 463 KB (Compressed into one file with 273 KB).
