Abstract
This report summarizes the rationale for consolidating data for the Cockroach Bay Aquatic Preserve study area and describes the procedural usage for the Consensus Group methodology for interagency data sharing developed by the State of Florida's Growth Management Data Network Coordinating Council. Examples of draft and final Issue Statements are provided as well as examples of how a voluntary process of data sharing has worked for this project. The use of Data Descriptive Summaries proved to be particularly effective in targeting data for acquisition. Some problems were encountered but over a million dollars worth of data, already produced by public expenditure for other purposes, has been successfully transferred.
