We are hosting a workshop at the Biennial meeting in Quebec City on October
11th demonstrating the newly improved data archive and visualization website
( <http://seamap.env.duke.edu/> http://seamap.env.duke.edu/) from the
OBIS-SEAMAP project.   It is an open access data center for marine mammal,
sea bird and sea turtle observations, the primary purpose of which is to
encourage collaborations and improve the understanding of these species by
making it easy to share and visualize biogeographic data with advanced
mapping and query tools.  We are rapidly adding published datasets,
developing new tools and adding functionality to better serve the research
and management communities.  Benefits include an off-site archiving service,
multi-faceted visualization of your data and increased visibility of your
research program while data providers retain ownership of their data.  The
event, useful for both data providers and users, will include sections
focusing on visual survey data, as well as integrating photo-ID and acoustic
data. You are invited to participate as potential data providers and/or
users of OBIS-SEAMAP.
