|Ocean Biogeographic Information System|
This website is a network of systematic, ecological, and environmental information systems. Collectively, these systems operate as a dynamic, global digital atlas to communicate biological information about the ocean. Tools include: a c-squares mapper (a Perl utility) which plots dataset exents on a range of base maps, according to a string of c-squares passed to it via the web; a geographical information system designed for the storage, dissemination, integration, analysis and dynamic display of spatially referenced series of diverse oceanographic and biogeographic data; and a set of analysis tools that allow researchers to perform a variety of functions using biodiversity data. A data provider service provides a template for marine survey data; the site also provides a distributed data search for species and their geographic regions.
