Integration of invasive mussel detection data in RISE
The proposed work will integrate Reclamation data on invasive mussel detection and monitoring into the data sharing platform RISE. The TSC and the PN Region have both collected large datasets of invasive mussel early detection results. These two datasets are not currently integrated with one another, and neither is paired with GIS or other tools for visualization and analysis. This project will work with IRO staff to add invasive mussel data to RISE and to develop tools for visualization of the data, including mapping of sampling and results, charting of temporal trends in the data.
Need and Benefit
Reclamation has amassed some of the largest datasets available on the spread of invasive quagga and zebra mussels. Integrating these data into RISE will greatly improve the utility of these invaluable datasets by combine them in a singe location and facilitating development of tools for data visualization and comparison with other Reclamation datasets. This resource will enhance invasive mussel research both within Reclamation and by external researchers working to control the spread of these organisms and control established populations.
