The Strategic Plan for the U.S. Geological Survey Bio-logical
Informatics Program (2005-2009) recognizes the need for effective
data management: Though the Federal government invests more than
$600 million per year in biological data collection, it is
difficult to address these issues because of limited accessibility
and lack of standards for data and information...variable quality,
sources, methods, and formats (for example observations in the
field, museum specimens, and satellite images) present additional
challenges. This is further complicated by the fast-moving target
of emerging and changing technologies such as GPS and GIS. Even
though these technologies offer new solutions, they also create new
informatics challenges (Ruggiero and others, 2005)
