All Marine Data on One Google Map
Marinexplore has created a Google Map to visualize data captured by oceanographic instruments positioned all over the world.
The map allows users to explore data from over 1.2 billion measurements taken by global buoys, floats, ocean platforms, satellites and wave gliders. The map includes a time slider to enable users to filter the data by location and by date.
The available data sets include wave watch data, sea wind data, sea temperature and ocean currents data.
