ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

  1. Develop GIS layers for PETR trails as we fully develop them
    1. GIS to NPS standards
    2. Create Field maps for Site Bulletins (one page handouts)
    3. Create interactive Maps for NPS App - create be a story board map where we provide natural and cultural resource information at key points along the trails
    4. Develop site pamphlets for each location for production by WNPA - again providing natural and cultural resource information at key points along the primary trails (Boca Negra, Rinconada, Mesa Prieta, and Piedras Marcadas)
    5. Create Maps for updating wayside and trailhead kiosks
    6. Develop Interactive maps for our Park website
  2. Signage - Complete sign inventory with GPS locations - create a database to track signs - that allows us to input location, condition, date of installation (of new sign), message/text on sign, etc.)
  3. Assist with visitor use monitoring.
  4. Analyze our monitoring protocol, how we collect data, and work on ways to improve upon the program - research the collection technology, how we can better manage the data, find gaps, and understand the results.
  5. Photo database management - how can we better analyze these photos, identify objects of interest, capture information, and track/document?
  6. Remote sensing. Can we use remote sensing to analyze recovery over time?
  7. Trail condition monitoring - part of our monitoring protocol would be to assess the change in trail conditions after we establish formal trails, including the width of the trail, erosion issues, and the recovery of social trails/routes as we place signs and barriers. A specific research protocol for this would be of interest.
  8. Trails - how do we assess the success of our trail barrier / signage program - as a potential research question. How will our monitoring tell us if we are protecting the resources?
  9. How do we assess the success of public communication - signage, website, programs, community outreach?
  10. Develop PETR specific visitor use survey using the OPM materials as a starting point - to allow us to better assess response to the implementation of the VUMP.
  11. Based on the data collected for visitor use monitoring, develop a way to help us visualize the data - maps and analyses that help us focus management and monitoring on the most at risk/critical areas.
