USGS BBS Data Entry and Web-based Management Interfaces Contract AWARDED to ICS

Paramus, NJ - December, 2003 - Indus Consultancy Service, Inc. (ICS) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the federal contract for the Development of Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) Data Entry and Web-based Management Interfaces by the U S Geological Survey (USGS) Patuxent Wildlife Research Center.

The BBS has accumulated over 35 years of data on the abundance, distribution, and trends for more than 400 bird species. These data permit the analysis of population trends and mapping of relative abundance and trends at various geographic scales. These data are widely used by researchers, federal and state governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the general public for various management, research, and educational purposes.

ICS will develop the web-based data management interfaces, data entry interfaces, web quiz interface, and web-based data retrieval interfaces to facilitate BBS data and program management by national and regional coordinators, BBS participants, and the general public in three countries: U.S.A., Canada, and Mexico. Once implemented the site will support three languages: English (U.S.A.), French (Canadian), and Spanish (Mexican).

This project will consists of six major components: 1) a web-based data managers interface for national and regional coordinators, 2) a web-based and stand-alone data entry and review interfaces for bird and stop location data, 3) a web-based public data retrieval interface, 4) a web-based participant quiz, and 5) SQL views, stored procedures, and queries for site administrator to manage all database tables and data. Sites will also meet all USGS and CWS visual identity, section 508, and web/IT security standards.

"We are excited about this opportunity to work with USGS and we plan to use SQL server, ADALON modeling, and COLDFUSION / Filemaker Technology", said Systems Analyst Duohong Xia.
