Ocean Tracks is an interactive web interface intended for use in educational settings. The goal of Ocean Tracks is to provide easy access to animal tracking and oceanographic data collected and made available by the Global Tagging of Pelagic Predators program (www.gtopp.org), NOAA, NASA, and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (www.nceas.ucsb.edu/GlobalMarine). The Ocean Tracks interface also provides student-friendly tools to help students make meaning of these complex data sets.
The Ocean Tracks library provides learning content on a variety of topics relevant to the use of this data in the classroom.
The Ocean Tracks project has been funded by the National Science Foundation, and is a collaboration between Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC.org), Stanford University, EarthNC (earthnc.com), and the Lifelong Learning Group (lifelonglearninggroup.org).
