The first workshop was hosted at the Audubon Naturalist Society in Chevy Chase, MD and was a two-day introduction to data interpretation and visualization. UMCES developed a Data Interpretation and Synthesis Methods Manual for this workshop in order to assist students with the concepts introduced. The second two-day workshop, held in Annapolis, MD, provided advanced data interpretation to CMC groups and helped them to better communicate their monitoring data.
