Joint Ecosystem Modeling

Ecological Model Automation and Presentation System (E-Maps)

An automated web server-based decision support framework has been developed for data acquisition from external sources, evaluation modeling, and rapid display of spatiotemporal ecological model results, summary evaluation graphics and reports. The tool is designed with flexibility that encourages its use as a standard framework for future additional evaluations of ecological modeling. The framework can acquire and preprocesses monitoring data from multiple external sources to perform weekly ecological model evaluations. Data delivery occurs online via dynamic web pages that offer users the ability to view and compare past generated maps, as well as access the underlying numeric data.
