The Stewardship Project Registry Atlas captures records of completed projects (as far back as the mid 1990s) for many of the funding organizations in the Pacific Region. The data base and web map provide a public view of information about earlier stewardship projects for grant makers and proponents in locations and regions where they are considering new proposals. Stewardship groups and project reviewers are able to learn about projects throughout BC and the Yukon using a web-map interface and searchable web forms. This will improve stewardship and community planning, making better use of grant dollars for activities and reduce duplication of effort. Building the SPR Atlas was funded by the Pacific Salmon Foundation, Community Salmon Program. Now that it is operating CMN volunteers will continue to manage and gather more data.
The Stewardship Project Registry (SPR) has a much broader scope than the older Fisheries Project Registry (FPR), described below, capturing a wide range of land stewardship activities from many grant makers. The SPR includes some of the funding organizations listed in the legacy data of the FPR and other funders not captured by the FPR, for projects past and recently completed. The SPR is available for all grant makers that wish to contribute their completed projects in the coming years. All of the records in the FPR and the SPR are available for anonymous public view but an editor login is required to contribute new records about completed projects. If you or your organization have completed project(s) or final report(s) that you would like to contribute to the SPR or if you would like to assist financial, please use the contact links below. CMN will also be posting a link for a tutorial video, in the Atlas Training Videos section below, explaining how to navigate the web map interface and how to use the web forms search capabilities.
One of the earliest project registries in BC was the Fisheries Project Registry. It was a joint Federal (Fisheries and Oceans Canada) and Provincial (BC Ministry of Fisheries) project designed to track specific categories of fish and fish habitat related projects including inventory, assessment, enhancement, restoration, research and economic development, to coordinate funding across funding agencies and to promote partnerships on related projects. The FPR is included in this Stewardship Project Registry Atlas as a separate layer group “Fisheries Project Registry (2008) Locations” and in separate web forms accessed via a FPR Projects button at the top of the web map window. This data set has been static since 2008 so CMN decided to keep it separate and intact from the newer SPR which will continue to grow in scope and size as stewardship projects are completed.
