Genes Mapserver

The Genes Mapserver (formerly Metagenomes Mapserver) offers a sample-centric view on (meta-) genomic data from various sequencing surveys. An interactive map allows overlay of the sampling sites on the world map together with maps of environmental data layers. The Genes Mapserver also offers extraction of interpolated values from time-series of several physico-chemical and biological parameters such as temperature, dissolved oxygen, nitrate and chlorophyll concentration.

World Ocean Atlas (WOA05) Extractor

World Ocean Atlas 2005 is a set of objectively analyzed (1° grid) climatological fields of in situ temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, Apparent Oxygen Utilization (AOU), percent oxygen saturation, phosphate, silicate, and nitrate at standard depth levels for annual, seasonal, and monthly compositing periods for the World Ocean.

Use the WOA05 Extractor

World Ocean Database (WOD05) Extractor

WOD05 is a collection of scientifically quality-controlled ocean profile (time series) that includes measurements of temperature, salinity, oxygen, phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, chlorophyll, alkalinity, pH and plankton.

Use the WOD05 Extractor

Uploader for WOA05 & SeaWiFS Extractor

Uploads a file with your samples id, latitude, longitude, depth and date and provides in an output file the corresponding WOA05 parameters interpolated values and the SeaWiFS surface chlorophyll concentration resampled at 1-DD.
