January 2013 Data Archiving Progress

REPORT: Data Visualization Tool Progress

Our purpose is to bring together people who monitor birds, from the smallest bird banding and censusing stations to large bird observatories and government agencies and to preserve data for the future. Some of our goals are to:

  • increase communication between researchers through newsletters and meetings,
  • facilitate cooperative research projects spanning regional boundaries,
  • make bird banding data available to a wide audience,
  • provide tools to researchers and managers for data exploration and analysis, and
  • preserve data from loss.

Power Point Data Overview! Download our narrated Power Point slide show "LaMNA Incoming Dataset Processing Flow" about the process we have developed to fully document, archive, and then extract all data from any bird monitoring dataset into a common, easily shared format. It illustrates how we track and process data that we receive from our partners. This is an automated presentation, so it will start and move forward between slides on its own. If you have problems starting the program directly, please right-click the link and save the file to your computer for viewing.
