Description: The Avian Knowledge Network (AKN) is an international collaboration of academic, nongovernment, and government institutions with the goal of organizing observations of birds into an interoperable format to enhance access, data visualization and exploration, and scientifi c analyses. The AKN uses proven cyberinfrastructure and informatics techniques as the foundation of its development. Data are made available via secure and managed pathways. Additionally, data visualization and exploration tools are made available by a broad and diverse community of developers, analysts, and biologists. Through the development of tools and standardized data organization models, new analysis techniques are being developed that explore data fusion and federation techniques that allow the investigation of patterns of bird occurrence across multiple datasets. Finally, the Avian Knowledge Alliance uses the AKN and consists of a distributed network of nodes that provide regional or thematic access to decision support tools and other applications to support research and bird conservation across a variety of spatial scales.

Keywords: bird occurrence data, data organization management, discovery, access, visualization, exploration, and analysis, internet, information, technologies, informatics, user community
