FMRI Web Forum
CLIENT: Florida Marine Research Institute (FMRI)
LOCATION: St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
STARTING YEAR: 1997
GPC assisted the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Marine Research Institute (FMRI). FMRI commissioned GPC to support the Institute’s Information Science and Management group in carrying out a focused effort to define the form, function and phased implementation of an FMRI Web-based Forum. This initiative is driven partially by a need to provide an Institute-wide, coordinated Web presence while also supporting the specific information access and dissemination requirements of individual programs. The FMRI Web Forum is also intended to comprise a comprehensive outreach, communication and collaboration infrastructure connecting the Institute with other scientific research organizations, federal, state and local agencies, community decision makers and the general public.
