Presentation Transcript


The National Park Service's Information Management Strategy, Infrastructure, and Software Applications


  • Overview of Data Strategy (big picture)

  • NPSpecies – Biological Data Warehouse

  • Applications, Partnerships, & Beyond

  • Final Thoughts & Recommendations


Natural Resource Challenge

  • Conduct Baseline Inventories

    • GIS / Base Cartography

    • Bibliographic

    • Natural History Collections

    • Legacy Data

  • Initiate Ecological Monitoring


Design Issues

  • Decentralized System

    • ~270 Parks with NR data

    • Nine regional offices… and more sub-offices

    • Maine to Guam

  • Multiple Needs

    • Natural Resources Management

    • Interpretation

    • Maintenance, Compliance, Permitting…

Observations

  • A record in which event (date/time, observer, etc.) and location information of an organism occurrence is permanently catalogued, but no physical evidence of the organism is collected.


Vouchers

  • An observation record in which physical evidence of the organism (specimen, audio recording, photograph, etc.) is also collected, cataloged and archived along with the permanent cataloging of event and location information.


References

  • Traditional documents such as publications and reports that document the occurrence and/or status of organisms in parks.

  • Cataloged in NatureBib

  • NPSpecies records linked to NatureBib references

  • Primary References Preferred

    • Doe, John. 1999. Small Mammal Inventory of Katmai NP.

  • Secondary References Okay

    • Birds of North America Field Guide


Standard Classification System

  • TSN (Taxonomic Serial Number)

    • Unique number for every scientific name of each rank (kingdom,…, genus, species, subspecies, …, forma)

  • ITIS-Managed Names

    • Permanent

    • Positive TSNs

  • NPS-Managed Names

    • Semi-permanent

    • -500,000 to -900,000 TSNs

  • Temporary Names

    • Temporary

    • Negative numbers excluding -500,000 to -900,000

Recommendations

  • Distributed System seems to work best

  • Use TSNs

    • Key to integration

    • Everyone’s doing it…


NPSpecies Integration

  • Department of Agriculture - ITIS Database

  • NPS/eNature - Park-Species Interpretive Profiles (Online Field Guides)

  • FWS - National Wildlife Refuge Species Lists

  • FWS - Endangered Species Act Federal T&E Information

  • NPS - Park Profiles

  • NPS - Natural Resource Profiles

  • NPS - Fire Effects Database

  • NPS - Law Enforcement Critical Incident Reporting System

  • NPS - I&M NatureBib Bibliographic Database

  • NPS - I&M Dataset Catalog

  • NPS - Automated National Catalog System (ANCS+)

  • The Nature Conservancy - TNC Global Ranks

  • NatureServe/Natural Heritage Program

  • State Agencies - State T&E Information
