The Natural Resources Information Management Program (NRIMP) is a part of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), and is a participant within the regional StreamNet Project, a cooperative venture of federal and state agencies and tribes in the Pacific Northwest. Our Program provides information and services that are essential for accomplishing ODFW's mission - to protect and enhance Oregon's fish and wildlife and their habitats for enjoyment by present and future generations.
NRIMP supports the efforts of ODFW by:
- Identifying and prioritizing natural resource information needs for fish and wildlife management.
- Developing and promoting the use of modern data collection and analysis techniques.
- Promoting the use of technology that will benefit the department's natural resource data collection and management needs.
- Developing and providing consistent, accessible, high-quality information.
- Encouraging the synthesis and transfer of scientific information into management recommendations.
- Developing and promoting a multidisciplinary approach to fish, wildlife, and habitat management.
Our Program also provides GIS data, maps and reports, data standards and protocols, and links to other state agencies.
