The first version of the Indicator Reporting Tool is available. It uses novel technologies to bring together data from Gulfwatch, the Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System (GoMOOS) and Mussel Watch. Point-source data and eelgrass extent also are available. The tool effort was started in 2006 by The Gulf of Maine Council’s Ecosystem Indicator Partnership (ESIP) to provide up-to-date contaminant and nutrient data for the Gulf of Maine. The project is funded through a grant from GeoConnections, a Canadian initiative to use technology to deliver scientific information to resource managers, community leaders and citizens. ESIP is involved in follow-up projects to bring in more indicator data and improve graphing and data functions. [View the new tool and ESIP’s current Monitoring Map]
