Need to find when or where the ship was?

Use the Ship Location tool to query by time and/or position from underway data collected since 1985.

Find out how close the ship was to a particular point.

Identify marine data within complex regions.

Use the ARMADA tool to identify the spatial and temporal extent of each data type within Marine Protected Areas or Key Ecological Features and optionally extract the data.

This set of tools are prototypes for demonstrating concepts of aggregating data via web services from data providers around Australia as part of a NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub project.


Use theWaypoints tool to record a set of waypoints, which can then be exported in a variety of formats (rux, excel, kml, CARIS, SIS and GPX).
