The collection of data from natural resource science activities is the first step to understanding the ecosystem within and around park boundaries. With this data, park managers are able to make informed decisions about the natural resources in the park for National Park Service planning, management and decision making.

To preserve the integrity, utility, security and availability of data for the long-term, the Alaska Region actively manages data and information. Detailed procedures regarding management of data and information may be found in the network data management plans.
