Data management is key for conservation science because it gives conservationists an opportunity to tell a story about our ecosystems. But when you have countless pages of data, how do you weave them together to tell a story that everyone can understand? How do you create a compelling report that in the most efficient way you can?
Collecting and coordinating all that data is time-consuming and cumbersome, especially if your data is not centralized. Make your conservation story easier, and move past spreadsheets and into a proper data management system. It cannot be understated how a data management system allows you to better organize and use your data. Afterall, what’s the point of collecting all that data if you can’t use it or present it in a way that tells a compelling story?
As your reporting requires even more data, it becomes even more important to have the right tools to build these complex reports. Your organization will benefit when you can use and present the data you have collected. But if you don’t know where to start with your data management, that mountain of data you have will look a lot more like Maple Mountain.
So during this year’s Latornell Conservation Symposium, stop in at the Waterloo Hydrogeologic booth and let’s talk about how we can help you work with your data and tell your conservation stories.
