Research Project: Development and Implementation of Natural Resource Databases Project Number: 5030-13000-010-23
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 20, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2014

Objective:
1) Provide support for the existing CEAP and REAP database efforts as part of the natural resource assessment for the Long-term Agroecologicial Research Program (LTAR); 2) Provide website design and development support to facilitate research data acquisition, GIS data, and research metadata from watershed and plot scale research; 3) Provide additional support utilizing ARCGIS server based delivery systems for data; and 4) Enhance data visualization tools for screening and displaying data.

Approach:
This project facilitates the on-going development and implementaton of watershed and plot-scale data collection from agronomic and natural resource research projects in support of the LTAR programs. This effort incorporates the existing efforts on the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) along with the Renewable Energy Assessment Project (REAP) to enhance the development of databases for these projects and their linkage with geospatial and natural resource data. Personnel assigned to this project will work with NLAE staff and CEAP, REAP, GRACEnet, LTAR, Ameriflux, and other ARS projects to provide programmatic support for the enhancement of web-based data collection and delivery tools.
