Presentation Transcript

  1. WP3 Biomapping status quo WP3: NRM, CDF, CEFAS, DINARA, WCS

  2. Objectives • Provide access to point data from alla available sources • Combine point data with environmental parameters to establish niche preferred niches and create maps (mostly done by WP1) • Establish a system where maps can be verified by experts • Provide authoritative species inventories • Predict changes in species composition based on climate change scenarios

  3. Dependencies • Maps are provided by WP1 (D1.4) • Underlying data from FishBase (OBIS, GBIF)

  4. Followup on STCM 2 • Progress. • Well…. • Publications. • Still in pipeline • Issues. Communication problems with CDF and WCS • Remain (solution?: more travel for CDF and WCS) • Agreement: More point data. • Some provided from FB-Sweden. With current access to GBIF+OBIS, difficult to excel

  5. WP Deliverables to date

  6. Maps = AquaMaps • www.aquamaps.org • Based on c-squares mapping tool (Tony Rees) • Maps available through FishBase servers

  7. AquaMaps • 4141 spp. to date

  8. AquaMaps • Multiple user options

  9. Before-after maps • Snapshot (outdated)

  10. WP 3 Deliverables due

  11. WP Papers projected

  12. Milestones • First workshop (review data body and assign tasks) - Month 5 • Kiel, October 2005 and Campinas, April 2006 • Second workshop (review map tools, and outcomes of analyses, decisions on dissemination and interfaces) - Month 27 • La Paz, March 2007

  13. Financial status • Current • Salaries: slight deficit • Coordinator travel: too much • WP workshops: maybe even break • FishBase Sweden co-sponsors ArcView, computers, books, travel, etc. • Prediction for year 2 end (April 2007) • NRM 2007 book-keeping will be available for analysis only end March (presently stands at EUR -50 000 ...)

  14. Wrap up • All deliverables must be available in some advanced format by September 2007 • Knowledge transfer within NRM from November/December 2007 • Final report work starts January 2008, together with NRM project management officer • No staff from March 2008 • Audition starts March/April 2008 (? what to do if budget not balanced)

  15. For further consideration • Occurrence data quality • Expert review • Data cleaning • More multi-species queries • Computing requirements • Processing of multi-species data • Server capacity
