All data available through CIOOS Atlantic can be discovered, accessed and downloaded via the tools outlined below. Specialized open source tools have been implemented and new tools developed in order to make data usable to a wider audience. For each tool a brief description is provided, along with relevant links. Additional tools and functionality are continually under development.
CIOOS Atlantic employs an ERDDAP server to provide access to historic and real-time observations from the Atlantic Seaboard.
ERDDAP is a data server that provides a simple, consistent method to download subsets of scientific datasets in common file formats and to create graphs and maps.
The Data Viewer is a CIOOS-developed tool which allows users to discover and explore ocean data from the Atlantic Seaboard. It provides a dashboard which supports simple visualizations and analyses of time series and other data components.
The Data Viewer is currently under development.
