Several thematic portals have been set up as part of the Data Explorer:
- Underway Data Explorer
- Station Data Explorer
- Zooplankton Data Explorer
- GPS Bird Tracking Data Explorer
- Fish Telemetry Data Explorer
- Batcorder Data Explorer
- CPOD (marine mammals) Data Explorer
Within the RShiny LifeWatch Data Explorer, five general sections are available to explore, plot, visualize and download data.
Some of the more recent data is temporarily under moratorium and therefore protected by password access.
An online manual gives a detailed overview of all functionalities.
The LifeWatch Data Explorer is built using RShiny server, Leaflet, ggplot2, PLotly, Dygraph and DataTables. The system is able to query MSSQL, PostgreSQL, Geoserver (WFS) and MongoDB servers.
