5 Why was IBIS Developed? Lessons Learned from the Spotted Owl Listing - Interagency supported and developed - Interagency supported and developed 5 Teams – Senior Science (Overall Guidance), Species-Habitat, Management, Marine, and Data/Digital Products Goal: T o Facilitate Common Understanding For Management

6 Developed to Facilitate A Common Understanding For Management What is IBIS? Over 150,000 Records

9 IBIS:Products&Outcomes

10 Distributed Data Set as well as a Data Center for Subbasin Planning and GIS Data; Maps at Multiple Scales; Maps at Multiple Scales; Common Fish and Wildlife Terms and Definitions to Foster a Common Understanding; Common Fish and Wildlife Terms and Definitions to Foster a Common Understanding; Species (Fish, Wildlife, Marine) and Habitat Species (Fish, Wildlife, Marine) and Habitat Information System; Fish (and Wildlife): Regional Distribution Maps, Database of Salmon-Wildlife Interactions, Fish (and Wildlife): Regional Distribution Maps, Database of Salmon-Wildlife Interactions, GIS Data Set Development and Support GIS Data Set Development and Support IBIS: Products & Outcomes

11 ISRP Review: Among the Best Justified of the Database Proposals "Key Informational Source for the Northwest ~National Biological Information Infrastructure "Best Available Science" "Best Available Science" ~Office of Community Development in Washington State "Best Practices" "Best Practices" ~Ash Institute-Harvard University IBIS

12 Current Proposal OBJECTIVES

13 Objectives Subbasin Planning: 1) Incorporating remaining IBIS and Subbasin data into an improved data management system; 2) Gathering & developing spatial (GIS) and non- spatial data; 3) Updating and developing wildlife- habitat maps to allow for change detection and finer assessments; 4) Developing advanced query capabilities and decision support tools to organize and understand ecosystem information at the watershed and field level; IBIS

14 Objectives Subbasin Planning, cont: 5) Coordinate with State, Federal and Tribal organizations to acquire, develop and/or collaborate on data layers pertinent to individual subbasins or ecoprovinces; 6) Coordinate with State, Federal and Tribal organizations at the subbasin- or ecoprovince-level to assist with verifying wildlife-habitat map classifications that are generated; 7) Operate and maintain IBIS (Internet access, user technical support, Web services and DBMS backups); IBIS

15 (NED) Scope of Work (section 2.4.3)...Develop a regional locator that allows monitoring information as well as other ancillary data sets to be recorded within a subbasin or watershed

16 IBIS ObjectivesNED: 1) Develop advanced query capabilities & decision support tools including an interactive mapping and visualization application (ELVIS); 2) Develop performance tools like field applications that incorporate data standards, field protocols and GPS (VEMA); and 3) Keep the IBIS DBMS and GIS layers updated with the help of an online peer-review system

18 ObjectivesGeneral: 1)Enhancing Habitat Evaluations; and 2)Education and Outreach IBIS

19 Funding Under 15 month Contract with NPCC [data placeholder account] Specific Task: Serve as Regional Technical Support for Terrestrial Resources in Subbasin Planning Funding Contract with BPA [data placeholder account] Specific Tasks: Maintain and Expand Maintain and Expand Current Subbasin Planning Information Current Subbasin Planning Information Develop Performance Tools (e.g. modifying HEP, HabitatDevelop Performance Tools (e.g. modifying HEP, Habitat Evaluation Procedures) Evaluation Procedures)

21 Users & Data Management Issues

22 Enhance Access to IBISs Habitat and Biodiversity Information: Users: –Subbasin plans –Habitat assessment –Monitoring and Evaluation Projects –Other Planning or Conservation Organizations Data Management Issues Addressed: –Standardization –Metadata –Data validation –Coordination –Application (user- friendliness)

23 Update and refine wildlife habitat maps: Users: –Subbasin plans (change detection, focal species, range maps) –Watershed coordinators –State & regional planning efforts –County & local planners –Conservation groups Data Management Issues Addressed: –Consistent classifications/definitions –Data validation –Integrate multiple data sources –Metadata –Coordination –Application (user- friendliness)

24 HABITAT STATUS Herbaceous Wetlands Mesic Riparian - Wetlands Montane Coniferous Wetlands Above habitat types are not well represented because of scale

25 Developing performance tools for decision-making Users: –Subbasin plans –All users of IBIS and GIS data such as: General PublicGeneral Public Natural Resource AgenciesNatural Resource Agencies Education InstitutesEducation Institutes PrivatePrivate Conservation GroupsConservation Groups Data Management Issues Addressed: –Provides user feedback –Integrates data from multiple sources/users (e.g. ELVIS) –Coordination of Application (user- friendliness) –Standardize sharing platform and transfer
