Other Focal Efforts • Continue enhanced outreach (webinars, trainings) • Format all MTNHP web pages for mobile access • Predictive models for all species • Range maps for plants • Automated review of observations (appropriate range, date, & habitat, not a duplicate record, and not a first record in a QLL)…focus manual review effort • Data exchanges with partners • Data exchange MOU update with FWP • Additional data use tracking tools
