Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Meets Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
The ISRP judged this proposal to be fundable, but of low priority. The ISRP found nothing wrong with the basic idea developed in the proposal, but did not find a significant improvement in information or information transfer for the purposes described. The project apparently would mostly make an existing document available over the web, not provide new information.

The proposal adequately presents a plan to put the CWCS system on the internet, but does not provide details about how this database could be used to support, enhance, or implement the Council's Wildlife Program activities in the subbasins. For instance, the CWCS database seems focused on mapping of cover types and potential distribution of selected species, without any sampling of numbers of species at these sites. The assumption seems to be that change in distribution will be an adequate way to measure progress towards objectives, but this assumption is not supported with technical and scientific background in the proposal. Perhaps the project is envisioned as providing more than is clearly articulated in the proposal, but, as presented, the proposed electronic database does not significantly advance information quality, availability, or application to meet the goals of the Wildlife Program.
