NANOOS Visualization System

VENUS data are available on the iPhone with NVS Mobile, developed by NANOOS.

The Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) Visualization System (NVS), is a tool for easy access to data for Pacific Northwest waters, from California to British Columbia. NANOOS is a regional member of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing Systems (IOOS) program and is funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide this service.

NANOOS Visualization System displays data from a diversity of providers, including federal, tribal, state, academic, industry and non-profit organizations, who operate a wide variety of observing assets such as buoys, shore stations, sea-bed and coastal land-based stations.

NVS allows you to browse through a map of all NANOOS Visualization System observing assets. You can then look at the most current data available, or obtain a plot of the last 7 days. Plots can be saved to your phone or iPod. Plots can shared by either email or SMS.

Ocean Networks Canada has developed an application for Android tablets that will wirelessly download data from recovered Temperature-Conductivity-Depth (CTD) instruments, parse and transmit the data to ONC's data centre. This application was developed for the Pacific Salmon Foundation in the context of their Salish Sea Marine Survival Project. Talk to us if you are interested in this new, very effective way of taking CTD casts and managing their data. This App and the collaboration was also described in "New app helps citizen scientists collect ocean data."
