This project is part of a broader on-going collaboration between IOOS and the animal telemetry community. IOOS and ATN participants are currently updating a 5-year strategic plan that describes this collaboration, including the phased development of a sustainable ATN Data Assembly Center or DAC for data collected by the growing U.S. community of marine animal taggers or biologgers. The revised strategic plan presents a broad vision for an animal telemetry network as a core component of IOOS that will Facilitate the organization of local animal telemetry systems into confederated regional nodes Facilitate integration of animal telemetry instruments with existing observing systems Improve data standards, management, sharing capability and establish a cyber- infrastructure for archiving and displaying telemetry data Serve as a focal point for the development of new sensor technology Bring permanence and sustainability to a national telemetry network and Expand animal telemetry outreach and education programs.
