Also, data compilations require intense stewardship at many levels. Scott Rumsey would like ODFW-CRL and others to help with this stewardship effort. This ODFW-CRL pilot aims to develop processes that can then be exported to other divisions within ODFW and other agencies within the region. It should be used as a template for other ESUs. The timeframe for prototype availability of the public web interface is about six months from today's date (12/12/08).

A small group will convene in early January to develop a strategy for normalizing ODFW-CRL databases. The group will include Julie Firman, Cedric Cooney, Briana Sounhein, Greg Robillard, Tim Welch, Sean Quigley, and Steve Rentmeester.
