Symposium: Data Management for Dissemination and Data Visualization

August 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
CC 414

The need for scientists to effectively communicate is becoming more apparent and important. This includes all fisheries professionals and all aspects of our profession. Disseminating and displaying fisheries data is an important part of communicating our science. The two major components of successfully achieving this are management of the data for access and dissemination and data visualization. Proper data management and data warehousing techniques are vital to creating an access layer from which data can be quickly and easily accessed…

Symposium: Marking, Tagging, and Tracking of Fish and Wildlife Part I

September 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

UPDATE: The symposium will be presented in THREE parts on Monday-Wednesday. See the full schedules here: Part 1: https://afstws2019.org/sessions/marking-tagging-and-tracking-of-fish-and-wildlife-part-i/# Part 2: https://afstws2019.org/sessions/marking-tagging-and-tracking-of-fish-and-wildlife-part-ii/ Part 3: https://afstws2019.org/sessions/marking-tagging-and-tracking-of-fish-and-wildlife-part-iii/ Fish and wildlife tracking data inform how individual organisms and populations distribute locally, utilize habitat, migrate over larger scales, and evolve over time. Technological advances in tracking systems ignite the development of new questions about the ecology of species where previous tools did not exist to address them. Analyzed carefully, tracking data may indicate changes…

Symposium: Back to the Future: Can our Survey and License Sales Data Lead Us Forward in Hunting and Fishing?

October 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:20 pm

The combination of constituent survey results and license sales analyses provide unique opportunities to derive insights into motivations of hunters and anglers, and their patterns of activity and participation. Agencies have been conducting hunter and angler surveys for decades, and hunting and fishing license data has been collected since the middle of the 20th century. With this wealth of data at hand, what have we learned about hunters and anglers, and what can we do to remain relevant as the…

Symposium: Integrating Advanced Technologies in Fish and Wildlife Science

October 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

As computing, network, software, and scientific technologies continue to advance and develop rapidly, so too do their applications to fisheries and wildlife research. As a result of this fast-paced growth, keeping atop of new technological developments which could benefit fisheries and wildlife research can be time-consuming and overwhelming. Additionally, use of new technologies can be daunting when specialized knowledge is required to implement or modify these new tools or approaches. With no assurance that there will be a positive cost-benefit…
