CMI - Water Data Management - Planning & Sharing
Nikki Kroetsch, Community Engagement Coordinator at DFO Pacific Science Enterprise Centre will present her new Guidebook: Improving Environmental Monitoring Collaborations Through Co-development of Data Management Plans.
Lindsay Day, Program Manager for DataStream, and Mary Kruk, Water Data Specialist, will present on the new Pacific DataStream that The Gordon Foundation would like to initiate in BC and Yukon.

Nikki will highlight some of the lessons learned from her Master’s research; in particular, how collaborating with others and working together to create a data management plan can help alleviate many of the challenges stewardship groups and their collaborators currently face with regards to environmental monitoring. Nikki hopes that her presentation, and the Guidebook she created as part of her Master’s project, will help stewardship groups and government agencies work together more efficiently and effectively, with the ultimate goal of having stewardship groups contribute meaningfully to resource management and decision making by helping reduce data gaps currently experienced by resource management agencies.

Lindsay and Mary will introduce their aspirations for the new Pacific DataStream for BC and Yukon. DataStream is Canada’s leading open access platform for sharing water quality data, developed by The Gordon Foundation and delivered in collaboration with regional monitoring networks. DataStream currently operates in four hub regions with the vision of becoming a pan-Canadian platform. Scoping work has just begun for a Pacific DataStream hub. By sharing data on DataStream, community science and watershed groups, Indigenous Nations, academic researchers, and governments of all levels broaden the audience and impact of their work. This presentation will outline the scientifically robust and digitally secure DataStream platform, including the map-based search, data visualization tools, and it’s focus on data access, storage, and interoperability.
