Modeling system for the scenary's actions of development and possible hazards to the biodiversity

This project proposes the development of an interactive, user-friendly and modular system that integrates biotic and abiotic data to visualize and model scenarios for potential threats and leads to better biodiversity resources management. The system is highly interactive to facilitate experimentation with causal variables and their effects, user-friendly to make more appealingto  decision makers and modular so that it can be implemented as a stand alone system or as part of the SSTN portal. The project articulates the following types of activities: software development, application of the resulting software to a pilot case in Costa Rica, and an evaluation by experienced potential users. The target beneficiaries are decision makers that define policies and concrete biodiversity conservation actions.

The development of an internet-based GIS ecosystem assessment and reporting toll for conservation decision-making

This proposal is for the development of an Internet-based GIS Ecosystem Assessment and Reporting Tool for conservation decision-making. This Internet-based tool will provide a "managerís dashboard" approach for querying current spatial information on habitat condition, socio-economic threat, and protected area status for the Mesoamerica and Caribbean region. This project will integrate IABINís Ecosystem and Protected Area Thematic Network and permit conservation decision-makers to cross-query ecosystems/species with protected area information, then report back spatial and tabular format user-defined categories on the condition and vulnerability of selected ecosystems/species.This information can then be used by conservation decision-makers to develop strategies and effectively allocate resources and activities to the most appropriate places.

Developing the functionality of the IABIN ecosystem thematic network database

The project goal is to catalyze collaboration and cooperative data development among ecosystem specialists throughout the Americas through the IABIN Ecosystem Thematic Network (ETN heretofore). We propose to continue implementing integration of available text, tabular, and mapped information for NatureServe terrestrial ecological systems and TNC freshwater ecological classification into the ETN classification framework and geospatial portal to serve the purpose of Hemispheric reference classifications.
