Abstract

The World Wide Web provides an effective means of supporting survey projects, particularly when data collectors are geographically dispersed. Wireless and wireline communications can be used to integrate the survey team by providing current and consistent supporting materials to all members of the project team. Interactive tutorials, survey instructions and updates, technical support, computer-assisted survey instrument software and updates, text-based and graphic survey management reports, data views for monitoring and editing, and summary reports are some of the tools that can be delivered via Web browsers to data collection staff, survey managers, clients, and the public. We will describe Web-based tools that have been developed to support a national survey of natural resources, and discuss possible extensions of this work.
