Case Study: Spatial-Driven Management Strategies Mongoose Detection on Kaua`i Mobile GIS Implementation – Taking GIS to the field
Kaua`i is the only main Hawaiian island without a large population of mongoose Kaua`i has the largest number of native bird species in Hawai`i Known road kill in 1976 Credible reports over the last 44 years Money for Detection What next?
Fill in Data Gaps – (Missing crucial biological data) Data Dictionaries, Photos, etc. More Accurate Spatial Data Post-Processing Options Dynamic Map Access in the Field Ability to query and view Map Data Reduce printing costs Reduce carbon footprint
Recreational GPS Hard Copy Maps Hard Copy Datasheets
Decide on hardware and software to use Designing a workflow that mimics existing data entry procedures Train field crew Automate as much of the process as possible GIS updates, datasheet downloads, etc Build in Quality Control Procedures
