A tool for 3D marine data interfacing.
This tool creates a GIS database from CTD, acoustic, and trawl data and integrates these data via interfaced routines in 3D space.
A tool for Cephalopod resource studies.
This tool creates a GIS database from satellite (AVHRR, SeaWiFS) and production data and examines the relations of Cephalopod resources with their environment
based on species life-history data.
A tool for species migration studies.
This tool integrates various satellite data (AVHRR, SeaWiFS, TOPEX-Poseidon) and outputs migration paths and corridors based on species life-history data.
A tool for upwelling studies.
This tool integrates various satellite data (AVHRR, TOPEX-Poseidon), identifies upwelling spots in AVHRR images according to the upwelling theory, and creates
upwelling indices by applying certain image measurement routines.
A tool for satellite database update.
This tool downloads various satellite images from worldwide public servers (DLR, NASA, US MIL) and process the images in a GIS-ready format.
A tool for studing sea surface water.
This tool uses satellite data and applies certain characteristics to sea surface water according to its temperature and chl-a content.
A tool for sea surface predictions.
This tool uses time-series satellite images (AVHRR and SeaWiFS) and outputs short-term (weekly and monthly) predictions of SST and Chl-a.
A tool for species spawning areas studies.
This tool integrates various satellite images with surveyed data and species life-history data to identify species spawning locations.
A tool for species concentration studies.
This tool integrates various satellite images and predictions with time-series data of species production and outputs species concentration areas.
A tool for GIS dissemination over the web.
This tool prepares GIS output (thematic & synthetic maps, reports, time-series integrated graphs) in a set of animated cartography products for display
and dissemination on the internet.
A tool for integrated coastal zone management.
This tool integrates various satellite images, calculated data, human population data and certain coastal characteristics to output different management scenarios
based on resource sustainable development.
