Developing a Database and Web Viewing Tool for Ungulate Migrations in Wyoming

The purpose of this project is to develop an ungulate migration database that will contain the combined research results of animal ungulate migrations in Wyoming, and develop a framework for the long term partnership and maintenance of the database for use as a decision support tool. The project will take the substantial datasets from recent migration and movement studies and archive them at the Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC). Once data are housed within the secure relational database, the data are standardized into a common structure to allow for seamless online viewing and decision-support tool creation. This platform will allow Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) personnel and others to evaluate migration patterns, timing of migrations, location of road crossing, and other useful information through common user interfaces.
