What should our Guardians record in the field, and how? How can we efficiently store that information, and find it again later? Is it helping our leaders make and influence high level decisions?
Indigenous Guardians create data when they record observations, in the community, or on the land or water. Used well, data can be a powerful force for Indigenous nations. Yet decisions about what data to gather, how to do so, and how to store or manage it, are some of the most common and pressing questions for Guardians!
In this webinar participants will hear from three guest speakers, Lara Hoshizaki (Program Manager, Coastal Stewardship Network), James Morgan (Lead Technician and Field Coordinator, Gitanyow Lax’yip Guardian ), and Tanya Ball (Coordinator, Kaska Land Guardians). The will discuss to how to decide what data to collect to support strong decision-making, how to collect, manage and use large amounts of complex data, and how to work across Nations and Guardian programs to gather complementary/similar data. There will also be opportunities to share the data tools and apps you use for your Guardian program with the group.
