Is to provide support for the existing CEAP and REAP database efforts as part of the natural resource assessments. Provide website design and development support to faciliate research data acquisition, GIS data, and research metadata from watershed and plot scale research. Provide additional support utilizing ARCGIS server based delivery systems for data and enhance data visualization tools for screening and displaying data.
This project facilitates the on-going development and implementation of watershed and plot-scale data collected from agronomic and natural resource research projects. 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, and other ARS projects to provide programmatic support for the enhancement of web-based data collection and delivery tools.
