Abstract: This project will consolidate, document, and enter data sets, metadata, and other electronic resources into a web portal. The web portal will provide public access to information, data, and GIS visualizations. Scientist and researchers will utilize the web portal as a resource to assist in consolidating, accessing and synthesizing herring data. This project will also develop an ArcPad application for collecting herring aerial survey data directly into a GIS format. The project was conceived during an EVOS sponsored workshop in April 2006 that was tasked to identify Prince William Sound herring data gaps and develop restoration or research projects to help herring recovery. Participants indicated that knowledge of the spatial and temporal aspects of herring related data sets, e.g., herring spawn, lingering oil, and shore zone habitat was necessary to understand how restoration activities might affect herring abundance trajectories. Many herring related data sets that were are not easily accessible to restoration researchers and managers have been made available through the actions of this project in FY07 and FY08. This project will finish the work started in FY07 and FY08 and complete the process of data salvage for those data sets which were addressed in previous years. Several restoration options proposed at the Integrated Herring Restoration Program meetings will require spatial and temporal knowledge of herring related data as a tool for planning, input to a model or as a measure of the success of a restoration action. This project would provide easier access and visualization of selected herring data sets and other electronic resources.
