Poster – Species Mashup: Biodiversity in the Information Age

I presented this poster (I intend to supply a digital version at some later point) at the 2010 meeting of the Organization of Fish and Wildlife Information Managers. The agenda for that conference is available online.

This was part of my contract work as content manager for the now defunct National Biological Information Infrastructure’s Southern Appalachian Information Node (SAIN).

An archive of the NBII program’s web site is available from the U.S. “Fugitive Agencies”collection.

The most recent iteration of SAIN was as “SEIN” for “Southeast Information Node,” a change resulting from some of the organizational upheaval in the final months leading to the program’s ultimate termination in a Presidential line item budget request for the U.S. Geological Survey.   The archive for the overall site is available online: <https://wayback.archive-it.org/2361/20120105235453/http://www.nbii.gov/portal/server.pt/community/southeast/245>; the specific application promoted by this poster is available at <https://wayback.archive-it.org/2361/20120106000735/http://www.nbii.gov/portal/server.pt/community/species_of_greatest_conservation_need/1642>.
