California Avian Data Center, Point Reyes Bird Observatory Conservation Science
Data Center Description
The California Avian Data Center (CADC), a regional node of the Avian Knowledge Network (AKN) hosted by PRBO Conservation Science, integrates data on birds and ecosystems to improve conservation outcomes today and in the future.
CADC's goal is to make timely and relevant scientific data and analyses readily accessible to habitat managers, conservation practitioners, scientists, and the public.
For habitat managers and conservation practitioners – the latest interpretations of data as they apply to geographic areas and jurisdictions are available to derive trends, indices, interactive maps, and other visualizations from the collective data sources of participating partners. For decision makers – data are summarized and interpreted to guide policies and decisions about valuable natural resources such as water. For scientists – data are collected, stored, and made available so that research questions can be answered collaboratively and accurately at different scales within the state. For the public - summaries, resources, and the latest information on the needs and status of California’s birds.
