I’d like I&M information on brown bears in Alaska
Hmmm, what’s a network?!?! Well, I’ll click and see what I get.
This looks pretty good. What’s this Southwest thing? I want to know about bears all over Alaska
I’ll click this ‘Networks’ link.
Maybe there are more networks
many of these network things.
Maybe there’s a national catalog?
Dang. No catalog.
Can I search all the networks?
Well I’ll try this Southeast network thing.
Dang, no bears here. What the heck is a ‘Vital Sign?’ Is this a medical site?
There was nothing on that Southeast thing. I’ll try Central. (Click)
But why does it look different than that other bear site?
Aren’t these all Park Service sites?
Am I lost?
(Why are they taking vital signs of moose?)
This one looks different, too. I don’t get it.
Aren’t these all the same program?
What’s going on?!?!
It’s all one program! Why isn’t there a catalog of these Vital Sign things?
Point # 1: If it can be cataloged and shared it goes up here
Point # 2: If it’s network specific it goes down here
Alaska SQL Server
Web Services (Systems Oriented Architecture)
NPS Data Store is great silo-busting example
