Integrating Natural Resource Data on Rare Species with an Internet Map Service (IMS) for Environmental Review and Reporting

Integrating Natural Resource Data on Rare Species With an Internet Map Service (IMS) for Environmental Review and Reporting


Project Dates: 2004 - June 2005

Funding Sponsor: F.E. Warren Air Force Base

Principal Investigator: Nathan Nibbelink

Other Personnel: Jim Oakleaf, Gary Beauvais

Project Summary:

The Wyoming Natural Diversity Database (UW) has performed a variety of natural resource inventory and research projects on F. E. Warren Air Force Base over the past 10 years.  These projects form a comprehensive investigation of flora and fauna of management concern on the base.  These projects are ongoing, and will extend valuable time-series data sets pertinent to threatened species, invasive weeds, and other biological management issues.  Other consulting and research units have also performed natural resource research on the base, adding to a body of information that can assist base managers in avoiding adverse impacts to sensitive resources, and assure compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations.  The results and conclusions of much of this research are currently scattered across a variety of hard-copy reports, university theses, and independent digital maps.  In order to maximize the management utility of existing and future information, it is necessary to integrate it into a single, comprehensive, and spatially-explicit database.
