MiCorps Data Exchange

One of the key components of the MiCorps program is the MiCorps Data Exchange (MDE) platform, which provides online access to volunteer monitoring data through a searchable database. This system fulfills a critical role by allowing volunteers to gather and exchange reliable and meaningful water quality data for water resources management and protection programs at the state and local levels.

Due to resource limitations under the program, monitoring data will only be accepted from entities willing to comply with the MiCorps data entry protocols, which may require entities to reformat their datasets. The MDE will also only accept data for the monitoring parameters currently supported under the MiCorps program for lake and stream monitoring.

Identification of the “bugs” is an important part of MiCorps monitoring events.

Volunteers with other Michigan organizations may also collect data on lakes and streams, following their own protocols. If you represent a Michigan lake or stream volunteer monitoring program not affiliated with MiCorps and are interested in having your data linked below, contact us at micorps@msu.edu.
