CBFWA Presentation 7 PRODUCTS Best Practices for Reporting Locational and Time Related Data Check List for Organizing Field Collection and Management of Data (Draft) Best Practices for Data Dictionary Definitions and Usage (Draft) Completed recovery and integration of Subbasin EDT data and reach system data (NWHI)
CBFWA Presentation 8 PRODUCTS (Continued) Inventory of Water Quality and Other Related Databases for the Pacific Northwest Data Base Inventory of Data Definitions for Riparian and Upland Species White Papers for 2005 Regional Data Sharing & Discovery Workshop and Executive Recommendations Findings of 2006 Regional Environmental Data Sharing Workshop Hosted PNAMP Data Management Meetings
CBFWA Presentation 9 PRODUCTS (Continued) Researched, installed, tested and deployed a Northwest Environmental Data Network Portal see: Completed NED Portal Channels and Data Steward Roles and Responsibilities Guidance Completed NED Portal Data Sharing Agreement Cross-Walks of PCSRF, PISCES & other data dictionaries
CBFWA Presentation 10 Summary Regional Data Network Strategy and Needed Action 1.Build participation in MOU. 2.Move beyond the current ad-hoc arrangements for long term return on investment. 3.Focus on data standards, data stewardship, data quality (low cost - high impact).
CBFWA Presentation 11 Summary Regional Data Network Strategy and Needed Action 4. Maintain data definitions in an on-line regional data dictionary (evaluate Protocol Builder). 5. Work on data discovery and sharing. Populate and staff the NED Portal. 6 Migrate towards a DDBMS (distributed database management system) to connect regional databases into a coherent network.
