Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS)
Mid-Atlantic region of the Atlantic Ocean
MARACOOS OceansMap is a dynamic data visualization tool integrating near real-time observational assets and model forecasts that contribute to ocean monitoring in the Mid-Atlantic region. OceansMap is a web-based met-ocean data and emergency response simulation system. It consists of a GIS-based graphical user interface, a spatial database and web services from OceansMap Server. The web-interface allows users and groups to manage, visualize and analyze a variety of met-ocean data including operational model and in-situ observation data. It can also be used to set up different oil or chemical spill scenarios, run a trajectory and weathering model and visualize the results of the model. The trajectory models can seamlessly access the latest global and regional wind and current data hosted in OceansMap Server or from RPS’ EDS. The system also includes interactive GIS features and tools to manage spill response planning activities and assets.
TB of data
OceansMap enables management and digital visualization of disparate metocean data streams to collaborate and create a common operational platform for ocean planning and emergency response.
