Biodiversity Study GIS Data, Conservation Planning Mapping Application

Hi Clinton,

I read about your recent paper covered here:

I was wondering if you’d consider adding your biodiversity GIS datasets available for download at <http://biodiversitymapping.org/download.htm> to the Southeast Conservation Planning Atlas:

http://seregion.databasin.org/datasets/list#page=1

This would allow people to easily overlay your biodiversity data with other regional datasets, including the protected areas database.

I’ve CC’d the South Atlantic LCC GIS coordinator, Amy Keister, if you’re interested in seeing your data incorporated into the conservation planning atlas.

Thanks,

Tanner

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
