A multipartner project as large as the WLCI requires excellent intra- and interagency communication, as well as dissemination of products and other information to those interested in learning about the WLCI, gleaning information for informing and supporting planning and decisions, and tracking project progress. To meet that need, the USGS developed a Web site for the WLCI at www.wlci.gov. This Web site provides information about ongoing activities and facilitates user discovery (search functions) of additional resources, including workshops, publications, reports, newsletters, data, and both habitat conservation and science projects. With aid from the USGS Data and Information Management Team, the WLCI Coordination Team and Communication Team manage the Web site’s content.
The rapid acquisition of data and other information resources, ongoing product development, and evolutions of WLCI science projects and conservation activities necessitate regular maintenance and refinement of the WLCI Web site, as well as resolution of technical issues that may arise. It also necessitates that the USGS Data and Information Team (Data Team) works closely with the WLCI Coordination and Communication Teams to maintain information relevancy and identify outreach needs. In FY2014 our work focused on meeting those needs, which continues to be accomplished in three important ways.
First, authorized Data Team members routinely add and update information and products on the WLCI Web site, including project descriptions and results, photographs, press releases, and meeting notes and agendas. Second, Data Team representatives regularly communicate and (or) meet with the WLCI Executive Committee and the WLCI Coordination and Communication Teams to remain informed about WLCI activities and assist these entities in their efforts to identify and develop necessary modifications for the WLCI Web site, including effective methods for managing, advertising, disseminating, and improving accessibility of WLCI data, products, and other information. Third, Data Team representatives participate in ad-hoc committees assembled for managing and coordinating special events and activities. Methods associated with this work are published in professional articles and agency reports to ensure that they are available for application in future science and conservation projects.
