TranscriptionSegment 50 Tahoe Interagency Information Management System (TIIMS) Air Date: 1/13/04 Anchor Intro: Just about anything you want to know about Lake Tahoe from water quality data to weather history is now available on the internet. Shelly Purdy has details in tonight's Lake Tahoe Report. ((track 1)) The Tahoe Integrated Information Management System, or TIIMS, is now up and running and available to the public. TIIMS is a clearing-house of sorts where you can find anything and everything about Lake Tahoe. The topics available on TIIMS include: air quality, water quality, fisheries information, wildlife information, transportation and more. TIIMS pulls together data and research from various agencies and organizations and puts it all in one easily accessible place. ((sot @ 8:03, Tricia York, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency)) "TIIMS is actually a system that was intended to stop redundancy and duplicative efforts among the scientists, among the agencies, the technical and management agencies. This was a system that we would all have a shared understanding of what is going on in the basin." ((track 2)) Users who log-on to TIIMS can access raw data from a wide variety of research projects, or they can read summaries about each topic. ((sot @ 5:17)) "TIIMS is as broad and general or as deep and in depth as you are willing to explore it to be to answer the questions that you or your organization have." ((track 3)) The TIIMS website has been three years in the making and is still a work in progress. The TRPA is asking for public input on the system. ((sot @ 6:22)) "We're hoping for people to log-on to the system…check it out and see if it works." ((Track 4)) And, hopefully you'll learn something about Lake Tahoe you didn't know before. With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I'm Shelly Purdy for KOLO NC8. Anchor Tag: The TIIMS website can be accessed at
