The Lewis & Clark Wildlife-Habitat Discovery section of IBIS is an interactive mapping application featuring historic and current depictions of the northwest section of the Lewis and Clark Trail with emphasis on wildlife and their habitats. This application combines Lewis and Clark diary excerpts, Interactive Biodiverisity Information System (IBIS) data, and other ancillary data to compare the habitats and the fish and wildlife species that Lewis and Clark saw with those present today. The target audience of this application is K-12 students and anyone with an interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition.
The Lewis & Clark Wildlife-Habitat Discovery section of IBIS is being developed with a grant by the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial in Oregon Project (Portland, Oregon) and the National Park Service (Omaha, Nebraska) with additional support by the Conservation Management Institute (Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA), and is co-sponsored by the Oregon Forest Resources Institute. Rumble Creek GeoData (Condon, MT) compiled the Lewis and Clark diary excerpts, and the Lewis and Clark Project (EOS Education Center, University of Montana, Missoula, Montana) supplied the Lewis and Clark trail and campsite geographic information system (GIS) data. The Lewis & Clark Wildlife-Habitat Discovery application is being developed by the Northwest Habitat Institute and makes extensive use of its IBIS data.
