The overwhelming support and participation in the Winter Loss and Beekeeper Management Surveys that were distributed by the Bee Informed Partnership has given our team much data to review and analyze. We hope to manage this information efficiently using flow charts to communicate across all team members and to document how we plan to accomplish our goals. The image right is a preliminary overview of how your survey information is transformed into a data set that will be edited and distributed to the appropriate bee team members for analysis. This flow chart is central to understanding how we will process the data and generate results. The diagram uses shapes to indicate different processes and colors to specify personnel responsible for each task. Download a .pdf of the flow chart here.
