Do you have a set of strategic Public Outreach and Engagement materials

From: Jessel, Tanner – FS
Sent: Tuesday, November 29, 2016 12:30 PM
To: Banegas, Diane E -FS < >
Subject: RE: Do you have a set of strategic Public Outreach and Engagement materials

Diane,

Please pardon the intrusion, but your title, “Knowledge Management and Communication Specialist,” just caught my eye.

I’m a post masters (M.S. Information Sciences) research participant with PNW Research Station, through the ORISE program.

I’m working with our communications and applications group on Sharepoint and how to best use it as a science communications tool.

I cruised around on DigiTop yesterday to review the scholarly literature and found a few things, but would love to find internal, FS / USDA specific info on developing Sharepoint as a science collaboration tool.

I thought perhaps you might be aware of some internal communications regarding USDA FS vision for Sharepoint.

I did a very basic search on both USDA and FS sites, and found very little guidance on features available.

Just thought your role as a Knowledge Manager might have brought some of the info I’m looking for across your desk.

If not, would love to hear any ideas you might have on whom I might reach out to that could have this info.

Thanks,

Tanner

Scotch broom is a large nonnative shrub that has invaded forest and prairie sites throughout western Oregon and Washington. It produces many seeds that remain viable for years, enabling Scotch broom to occupy sites for decades. Several native grasses of the Pacific Northwest, however, show promise as effective competitors for inhibiting development of Scotch broom seedlings.

Research Slider Hi-Lite Issues

Hi Tiffany,

I found a few issues with the research slider.

I created an image gallery of screen captures to document the issues.

I then annotated the screen captures in a new PPT file (see attached).

I think we will want to go over the issues I found on Monday.

Also, some of the PNW Research Highlights are missing images.

Examples below, the notation “N” indicates that the image is not showing up. I recognize many of the images that are not showing up are images I created on the Forest Service server (e.g., rh-soot-emission-travel.jpg).

Perhaps they are not showing up because the images were not migrated from the FS server to the Ardent developer server?

We describe a data management system for long-term distributed decision-making projects. The data management system comprises 2 components: 1) an online database for data entry and dissemination of results; and 2) a locally stored relational database for analysis and archiving (Fig. 1).

Data entry, centralization, and associated validation (quality control) occur in the online component of the data management system. We host the online component on a Microsoft SharePoint website (http://products.office.com/en-us/sharepoint; Microsoft).

We have found that SharePoint websites provide a pragmatic solution for centralizing and storing large numbers of monitoring-data records. SharePoint websites can house tables of >30,000,000 records (Microsoft 2014a).

Base a form on an external source of data

By using the SharePoint list, database, or Web service, you can design a form template based on a receive data connection. Fields and groups are created locally, in the form, that correspond to the fields and groups in the external data repository. In other words, InfoPath 2010 locally mirrors the data structure of the external data so that, when the form loads the external data, there are no data integrity issues.

  3. Easier: Ctrl+F in open editing mode for “Assessment of disturbance agents” and record what field is there
    1. “Assessment of disturbance agents provides foundation for nationally integrated restoration program”
  4. Compare to “Sedge Species”
  5. Update “Sedge Species” with some kind of text
  6. Record result
    1. Honestly can’t see the difference at this time.
    2. Must study on 11/23/16

 

ITEM 2

Assessment of disturbance agents provides foundation for nationally integrated restoration program

The Terrestrial Condition Assessment is an effort to assess terrestrial ecosystem conditions through a process that is objective and consistent for all national forests. To support this; a station scientist led the design and implementation of a logic model in a spatial decision support system that can be used to assess effects of disturbance agents and other stressors on terrestrial conditions…

ITEM 3

In 2007, 645 square miles of Alaska’s Arctic slope burned. The Anaktuvuk River Fire(link is external) was the largest fire on record in the tundra since 1950. It released 20 times more carbon into the atmosphere than what it lost annually from undisturbed tundra. This amount is similar in magnitude to the annual net carbon sink for the entire…

ITEM 4

“During fieldwork documenting a climate- change-induced lake drying in the Yukon Flats area of interior Alaska, scientists found the sedge species Carex sartwellii. This species has a very specific habitat associated with drying lake margins. Owing to the vast terrain and limited access to the region, this species likely has occurred in the Yukon Flats for some time. However, as a component of…

A web-based survey of ID team leaders

Although research on leadership is common in the general management literature, studies of ID team leadership are rare. One study examining NEPA implementation in the US Forest Service found that leadership selection was based foremost on staff availability, and that subject matter expertise and prior experience were secondary qualities (Stern and Mortimer 2009).

FLickr Case Study

Another model might be to have Connie get her own Flickr, then add her Flickr to a PNW Research Station “Group” which you would be the administrator of.

This would prevent the Research Station Flickr from being flooded with Yellow Cedar Albums.

For an idea of that, check out USFS Region 5 Flickr (2,893 Photos):

https://www.flickr.com/photos/usfsregion5/

Then check out USFS Region 5 State and Private Forestry Flickr (13,204 Photos):

https://www.flickr.com/photos/usfsr5/

Here are USFSregion5 Groups:

So, a bit different approach from what I suggested yesterday.

Lab Web Page Project

Hi Rhonda,

Do you happen to have photos for march 2016 Science Finding?

http://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/sciencef/scifi183.pdf

The reason I ask is there is a photo of moving plants on a cart from OFSL lab greenhouse to lath house that I’m interested in using for the lab web page project.

Thanks,

Tanner

Hi Tiffany,

 

Revised Program Areas Headings and Order

Using notes I took from our discussion with Cindy last week, I have revised the program area headings and order.

 

I have not talked with Paul yet to get the new text on “our value.”

 

Should we run this revised document by Cindy before you put work into revising the Drupal template?
