All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI)
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The primary justification for conducting the ATBI is to improve the management of Great Smoky Mountains National Park through the use of data on the identity, relative abundance, and the temporal and spatial distribution of species in the park. Because of the great volume of data the ATBI generates, these data must be organized and stored in a relational database. The ATBI desktop database is an Access database with a custom-designed user interface for entering, browsing, and querying data. While the ATBI server database is still under development, data from the desktop version are made available on this website. This does not reflect the considerable backlog of data not yet entered.
This prototype web page for sampling the ATBI database is based on pre-processed data from the current desktop database. The desktop database and its interface program for Microsoft Windows are available via web download from DLIA web page. Since this is a project under development, information and data are privided "as is". The National Park Service shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data.
