Marinexplore is a free marine data place for the ocean community – a fast and visual way to search ocean data, aggregated in a 3D coordinate system.
“In an era of big data, when 90% of the oceans are still unexplored and mobile oceanic sensors are disrupting the industry, the tools and working processes for ocean exploration have changed little over the last 15 years.
Today, most public ocean data is disconnected, often archived and never used again. Professionals across offshore, marine technology & scientific community who rely on that data, are isolated from each other, while more than 80% of the exploration time today is spent on data processing.”
