Abstract or Summary
  • The collection, evaluation, and organization of spatial information is instrumental to the successful development and execution of planning policies and management programs. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide the technology to integrate varying informational needs into a single relational database for ease in data retrieval and analysis. The use of a GIS by the Tillamook Bay National Estuary Project (TBNEP) has developed out of a need for more efficient utilization of large quantities of spatial information for watershed analysis, ecological modeling, educational and managerial purposes. An inventory of 161 GIS data layers has been completed. A metadata catalog that defines the available entities, attributes, and associated domain values of these geographic coverages was constructed. The catalog allows the user to identify mapped features and associated metadata information available for these features, in addition to the quality, definitions, and other characteristics of the data in an interactive environment. A potential user is able to peruse the metadata information and render an informed judgment about the fitness of the data for the projected use. This interactive metadata catalog is used to advise system users of the content, characteristics, quality and availability of GIS coverages, while providing information that can be used to assess potential problems or limitations inherent in the GIS database.
