Description

Workshop Purpose

This workshop is the fall 2017 meeting of the Oregon Coastal and Marine Data Network. The intent of the network continues to be to link the broad community of agencies and institutions who are directly engaged in CMSP within Oregon, and to serve the needs of the wider coastal and marine data user community.

All are welcome: if you have a topic you would like to report on, please send an email to tanya.haddad@state.or.us and an agenda will be posted soon!



About the Venue

The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library has three meeting rooms available for use by the public, we will be using the "Main Meeting Room". The library is located at 645 NW Monroe Ave (corner of 6th and Monroe).



Background

The genesis of the Oregon Coastal & Marine Data Network (OCMDN) can be traced back to the the 2009 legislative session, in which HB 3106 led to the formation of the Task Force on Nearshore Research (NRTF).

The Taskforce was assembled to study management issues in Oregon’s nearshore areas and make improvement recommendations back to the governor. The final NRTF report was submitted in August 2010, and contained six recommendations, including one entitled “Data Management and Coordination”. It is from this recommendation that the OCMDN eventually emerged.

The Oregon Coastal & Marine Data Network first met in June of 2011, and in September 2012 was endorsed by the Oregon Geographic Information Council (OGIC) as a new thematic Framework Implementation Team (FIT). As part of the endorsement process the network put forward a charter that formalizes a mission and specific network objectives.

Membership in this network community is voluntary and is open to all levels of government, industry, academia, private sector and the general public. All are welcome.
