Purpose: Forum of the Midwest Avian Data Center node of the Avian Knowledge Network

The Midwest Avian Data Center (MWADC) is a node of the Avian Knowledge Network. It is a partnership of people, institutions, and government agencies supporting the conservation of birds and their habitats based on data, the adaptive management paradigm, and the best available science. AKN partners act to improve awareness, purpose, access to, and use of data and tools at scales ranging from individual locations to administrative regions (e.g., management areas, states, countries) and species ranges.

This Group is a place for "how to" questions about using MWADC and also serves as repository for suggestions and ideas about MWADC.
