GeoWorld Recognizes Sturgeon Information Management System!

Keeping track of multiple field crews, hundreds of fish, countless search efforts, and thousands of river miles tracked is possible thanks to the Sturgeon Information Management System, or SIMS.  Not just a database, the SIMS framework also facilitates mobile mapping and electronic data collection as well as maintains and analyzes the data.  The SIMS mobile mapping component was featured in the April 2011 edition of GeoWorld magazine. GeoWorld magazine provides information on geospatial technology development relevant to the challenges faced today. It is an honor to be recognized for integrating geospatial tools into our biological study plan.  With the complex questions being asked of today’s scientists, it is becoming imperative to incorporate relevant technology to streamline workflow, data delivery and information reporting.

About Emily Pherigo

Emily is no longer with the Comprehensive Sturgeon Research Project. When she was here, she was a biologist contracted to the Comprehensive Sturgeon Research Project. Most of her time was spent at a computer performing QA/QC on data or updating figures and graphs most used by Aaron DeLonay. However, she occasionally made it to the river, where she enjoyed seeing pallid sturgeon and was reminded why she entered the natural resources field.
