Current NH Wildlife Sightings site
The NH Wildlife Sightings Website supports the collection of distribution, location, and habitat information for wildlife of New Hampshire through the reporting of observations by professionals and citizens of the state. The goal of this project is to enhance the site to:
1. Improve site navigation and extend functionality
2. Increase the number of wildlife species for data entry
3. Integrate habitat data into the database to allow communities of animals within a specific habitat to be identified.
4. Incorporate data verification processes into the data entry process to ensure quality data are collected.
5. Facilitate the dissemination and display of appropriate information for conservation purposes.
The project proposal was submitted to the NH GIS Conservation Collaborative by NH Fish & Game. GRANIT is a subcontractor on the project, working with Fish & Game staff as well as the other project collaborators listed.
