Title: Fish Web Collaborative: Towards an Integrated View of Fish Distribution Information for Ontario


1
Fish Web CollaborativeTowards an Integrated
View ofFish Distribution Information for Ontario
  • Craig Onafrychuk
  • Fisheries Metadata Officer
  • Information Management Spatial Analysis Unit
  • Southern Science and Information Section
  • Ministry of Natural Resources

2
Current Situation
  • Many agencies and community-based monitoring
    groups are collecting fish community and habitat
    information
  • Information is collected using various methods
  • Data are stored on agency networks or individual
    personal computers
  • As a result
  • Fish distribution data are undiscoverable,
    uncoordinated and unstandardized
  • Difficult to access information on fish
    communities and habitat necessary to make
    resource management decisions
  • Difficult to test effects of regulations, habitat
    improvements or other management techniques
  • Difficult to make comparisons across spatial and
    temporal scales

3
Purpose of the Fish Web Collaborative
  • To develop a multi-organizational collaborative
    model for the management of fish distribution
    data in Ontario and establish a single
    standardized source accessible over the Internet
  • Goals/Results
  • Increase communication data sharing
  • Reduce costs
  • Data analysis increase sample size compare
    across time space

4
Goal
  • Ultimate goal of the project is to provide one
    repository of fish data maintained by
  • multiple organizations and served via web mapping

5
Phases of the Fish Web Collaborative
  • Phase 1 Develop thematic data standards for fish
    distribution information (this project)
    completed by Sept 2008
  • (Proposed) Phase 2 Publish thematic data on fish
    distribution in Ontario waterbodies on the
    internet Oct 2008 Oct 2009
  • (Proposed) Phase 3 Develop a web-based
    application to enable the community of practice
    to continue to contribute fish distribution
    October 2009 March 2010

6
Objectives for Funding
  • To develop and implement thematic geospatial data
    organized around a particular theme (i.e., Fish
    Distribution)
  • Standards which allow for inter-organizational
    exchange and interoperability
  • Project must be collaborative and support an
    identified end-user community

Technical Team Member Roles
  • Provide technical direction
  • Empowered to actively participate on behalf of
    their organization
  • Communicate progress to solicit information
    from home organization (esp. senior management)
  • Coordinate the cataloguing of fish distribution
    data with Metadata Coordinator
  • Support delivery of User Needs Workshops

9
Phase 1 Thematic Data Standards
10
Phase 1 Goals
  • Compile a comprehensive list of existing fish
    data sources
  • Document the essential descriptive and
    administrative information to support discovery,
    access and use of existing fish data sources
  • Conduct workshops with users to develop a
    consensus-based data model

11
What is Metadata?
  • High-level descriptions which enables the
    discovery and analysis of data
  • At the very least, metadata answers some
    fundamental questions about data
  • Who created the data? Who maintains it?
  • What is the content of the data? What is its
    structure?
  • Where was the data collected? Where is it stored?
  • When was the data collected? When was it
    produced?
  • Why was the data created? What is the purpose?
  • How was it produced? How can it be accessed? What
    data quality can you expect?

12
Collecting Metadata A Team Approach
  • Identify a Metadata Coordinator
  • User of standards and tools
  • Establish a production process
  • Interview method or individual entry
  • Common templates
  • Engage appropriate specialists
  • Data owner (You the practitioner)
  • GIS Specialist / Metadata Clerk

Information Entropy
Time of data development
Specific details about problems with individual
items or specific dates are lost relatively
rapidly
General details about data set are lost over time
DATA DETAILS
DATA DETAILS
Retirement or career change makes access to
mental storage difficult or unlikely
Accident or technology change may destroy data
and documentation
Loss of initial data developer results in loss of
remaining records

Metadata Standards and Tools
  • Ontario Land Information Directory (OLID)
    Metadata Directory metadata editor
  • Catalogue tool and repository
  • Metadata records catalogued according to the
    Government of Ontario IT Standard (GO-ITS 72)
    Geospatial Metadata Standard
  • Based on the North American Profile of ISO
    191152003
  • Compliant with Canadian Geospatial Data
    Infrastructure (CGDI) endorsed standards
  • OLID is a registered repository with
    GeoConnections and is discoverable via
    GeoConnections Discovery Portal

16
How is the Fish Web Collaborative Unique?
  • Metadata collection is being conducted on behalf
    of agency
  • Maintenance of record is transferred to agency
  • Metadata being published prior to data
