Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission to Migrate StreamNet Mapping Application

gnPacific States Marine Fisheries Commission Chooses GeoNorth to Architect ArcGIS Server Solution

GeoNorth announced a recent contract award from the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC). Under this new contract GeoNorth will provide assistance with the migration and re-engineering of the existing StreamNet mapping application from ArcIMS to ArcGIS Server.

StreamNet is a cooperative information management and data dissemination project focused on fisheries and aquatic related data and data related services in the Columbia River basin and the Pacific Northwest. It is funded through the Northwest Power and Conservation Council’s Fish and Wildlife Program by the Bonneville Power Administration and is administered by the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission. The project supports staff inside the management agencies to obtain, georeference and standardize data. The data are maintained and disseminated through the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC). A variety of data are provided in tabular format and as maps and GIS layers. Information is available through the online database query, interactive maps, the Data Store, or by custom request.

With the goal of updating an aging application and significantly improving its usability, performance, and management, a team of GeoNorth and PCMFC developers will collaborate to create the new StreamNet mapping site using the latest in ESRI’s ArcGIS Server technology including the JavaScript API, as well as the potential incorporation of ArcGIS Online data. The new StreamNet site will simplify the searching interface for accessing data, determine available data based on geography, and present information to the user in an intuitive, meaningful format.

GeoNorth will leverage the experience and expertise gained from several past projects for similar agencies tied to natural resource management, one of GeoNorth’s core business sectors. With 15 years of experience in this area, GeoNorth has worked with such agencies as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, US Minerals Management Service, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Washington Department of Natural Resources, Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Alaska Department of Natural Resources, University of Alaska Statewide Office of Land Management, Oregon Department of State Lands, and the Bristol Bay Science and Research Institute.
