Site Byte:

1. Annual Site Byte

IM activities at Cedar Creek over the last year have focused on standardizing datasets and migrating them to an online database. Metadata has been systematically examined in an effort to bring our content to EML level 4.

Concurrent with these activities, we are completely redesigning out website to better Cedar Creek’s outreach efforts while making information more accessible to researchers. We have also upgraded many proprietary software packages Cedar Creek had come to rely on to more accessible, efficient systems.
