Some Elements of Data Management

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 Greater Yellowstone Network actively manages data and information. Detailed procedures regarding management of data and information may be found in the network data management plan.

A primary responsibility of the Inventory and Monitoring program is to ensure that data are available for decision-making, research, and education. Once internal quality control procedures are complete, non-sensitive tabular and spatial data are made available online from the NPS Data Store.

The Reports and Publications page provides direct links to numerous digital documents relevant to GRYN's mission.
