87 Databases should be well organized, but generic enough to accommodate a variety of information Metadata should always be recorded along with the data, to assure repeatability 20, 50, 100 years from now. Metadata should include How Good? Quality assurance information to help prove that the data is good.

88 Our lakes are dynamic, diverse and ever- changing. Our database must be up to the task of adapting to changes (new aquatic invasive species) in data we collect. Reports and map products should be automated as much as possible to enable people to get up-to-date data fast, when needed.
