Goals / Objectives
Develop an organizational data management plan that will enhance coordination, stewardship, utilization, and sharing of these assets. The Penn State Center for Environmental Informatics (CEI) will assess strategic organizational data needs and establish overarching goals and objectives by defining key business cases and identifying all project stakeholders.
Project Methods
Through a series of interviews and meetings, detailed requirements will be gathered and analyzed regarding data/information collection, processing, quality control, documentation, storage (including backup and archival), security/ privacy, use, reporting, and sharing. All information resources will be cataloged for subsequent assessment and prioritization with the Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit (PSWMRU). With respect to the defined organizational needs, requirements, and priorities, CEI will work with PSWMRU to document appropriate workflows, policies, standards, staff roles and responsibilities for managing data. CEI will make recommendations for future software tool and database development.
