DESCRIPTION: The model for how aggregations of data can be used in bird conservation has evolved over the last ten years from centralized data management to distributed data sharing, and the main hub for data sharing in North America is the Avian Knowledge Network (AKN). In 2011, the Midwest Coordinated Bird Monitoring Partnership launched a new regional node of the AKN, the Midwest Avian Data Center. Since then, we have successfully incorporated over 300,000 new bird observations, developed a new application to help people manage and enter bird monitoring data, and enhanced our decision support tools. We are now actively training and growing the community of users, from those who want to manage and share their own data to those who want to use data for research, conservation planning, or evaluating conservation outcomes at various scales.
