Penguin population dynamics data from the Mapping Application for Penguin Populations and Projected Dynamics. 1982 - 2016Entry ID: MAPPPD_2016_1.1
The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) and the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) have committed to using ecosystem-based management approaches in Antarctica. The Mapping Application for Penguin Populations and Projected Dynamics (MAPPPD) is a web-based, open access, decision support tool designed to assist scientists, non-governmental organizations, and ... policymakers working to meet the management objectives as set forth by CCAMLR and other components of the ATS (i.e., Consultative Meetings and the ATS Committee on Environmental Protection). MAPPPD was designed specifically to complement existing efforts such as the CCAMLR Ecosystem Monitoring Program (CEMP) and the ATS's Visitor Site Guidelines. The database underlying MAPPPD includes all available (published and unpublished) data on the four penguin species (Emperor, Gentoo, Ad?lie, and Chinstrap) with significant breeding populations south of 60? S. Population models can then be used to assimilate available data into estimates of abundance for each site and for each year; estimates are easily aggregated across multiple sites to obtain abundance estimates over any user-defined area of interest. A front-end web interface located at www.penguinmap.com provides free and ready access to the most recent count and modeled data, and can act as a facilitator for data transfer between scientists and Antarctic stakeholders to help inform management decisions for the continent.

Quality Quality flags, following the precedent set by Croxall and Kirkwood (1979) and other compilations of penguin census data, are included with all data records so end users can filter by count accuracy. Quality flags of 1 are those of the highest accuracy (e.g., recent ground counts that are site-wide), while flags of 5 are those of the lowest (e.g., estimates from satellite data or modeled output).
Access Constraints None. However, we ask that any data used be appropriately cited with provided citation details.
Use Constraints Data can not be used for financial gain or commercial purposes.
