The Data Clearinghouse houses natural resource information, including
reports, data files, databases, GIS files, maps and pictures from natural
resource projects; especially those funded by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement
Board, from Oregon Watershed Councils, and from Oregon
The goal of the Data Clearinghouse is to make Oregon’s
natural resource information more accessible and to provide a centralized
accumulation and distribution service for Oregon's natural resource data. The
increased availability of data provided by the Data Clearinghouse will support
Plan Assessment process, as well as other resource management efforts.
ODFW's Natural Resource Information Management Program (NRIMP) created
the Data Clearinghouse in coordination with the Oregon Watershed Enhancement
Board and the Oregon Explorer Program
at Oregon State
University (OSU), a partnership between the Institute for Natural
Resources (INR) and OSU
Libraries. Data and reports uploaded to the Data Clearinghouse are
available through the Oregon Explorer website.

DATA TEMPLATES -- UPDATED 24
New versions of the data templates have been uploaded! Updates include
a new look, increased location information, and reports for spawning survey
As part of the OWEB-sponsored Watershed Council Data Management Support
management tools are now available!
We have created data templates
as Microsoft Access databases and Excel spreadsheets for the surveys most
commonly conducted by Oregon's watershed councils and Oregon Plan partner
agencies. After looking at all the watershed council data sent to us, and
surveys conducted by other agencies (such as ODFW, BLM, and USFS), we have
proposed core data elements within each template that we hope will make the
collected data complete, useful over time, and comparable with datasets
collected by state and federal agencies.
