Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority

CPRA Data Management Plan

The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) creates, consumes, and disseminates large amounts of electronic data during its day-to-day operations. As such there is a need for a Data Management Plan which provides guidance regarding a data management system and the data contained within. A product of the combined efforts of the scientific community and data managers, this document communicates the resource requirements, policy needs, data handling procedures, and storage structures necessary to develop and maintain a data management strategy that facilitates access to data associated with the state of Louisiana’s coastal protection and restoration efforts.
