    Visualizing the Census of Marine Life
  • Log in

The Census of Marine Life was a global network of researchers in more than 80 nations engaged in a 10-year scientific initiative to assess and explain the diversity, distribution, and abundance of life in the oceans.  The world's first comprehensive census of the past, present, and future of life in the oceans was released in October 2010.


Workshop on Internet Mapping and Google Earth

Workship Agenda

Part 1 – Distributing Stories
Part 2 – OBIS-SEAMAP: Spatially & Temporally Interactive Mapping
Part 3 – Playing with Interactive 3D Globe

The workshop will consist of PowerPoint presentation, online/offline demonstrations. The meeting room will have decent Wi-Fi internet connection. So bring your laptop with you and play around with the online demos while the presentation is under way.


Share ideas on how to visualize georeferenced multimedia data in a spatially & temporally interactive way.

Feel free to exchange ideas and discuss issues and concerns with other CoML researchers as well as with Mapping & Visualization Team.
