The Ecological Data Portal is a web portal that maps and links available information on ecological datasets collected in Orange County. It is being developed through collaborations between the following:

...and numerous other agencies and NGOs.

Over time, many agencies, consulting firms, and academic researchers have conducted ecological monitoring projects and experiments throughout Orange County. There is currently a large volume of data held by different agencies on a variety of parameters, held in different forms without common metadata. The data portal provides knowledge of these datasets, useful for improving the potential for future collaborations, addressing basic questions in local ecology, and for developing a baseline for future monitoring.

In the future, we hope to provide specific ecological data sets and lesson plans for instructional purposes.
