The Wyoming Migration Initiative has established various access levels for datasets within the Migration Viewer.
This approach protects researcher ownership of their data, while also allowing wildlife managers, professionals
and the general public access to important datasets,. Contributing researchers and their funders have made large
investments of time and resources in these datasets, and so it is important to protect the integrity of their
research. Access levels for specific datasets are set by the data owner, not the WMI. For this reason, you may
experience different functionality while viewing different datasets. Our goal is to allow all users access to as
much data as possible. When the Migration Viewer is complete, it will provide agency managers and wildlife
professionals the ability to run simple analyses that aid their management work, such as what animals are in a
given hunt/herd unit at a certain time of year. Some data owners, have allowed the public to have full access to
a handful of individual but limited access to larger datasets. If you have further questions or would like to
gain access at a different level, please contact us at
Users, data, and functionality are each divided into five categories:
- Manager 1
- Manager 2
- Manager 3
In general the amount of access is least for the Public and increases as you move to Manager 3.
