The interactive map is highly detailed and customizable, allowing you to filter by location, species, colony size and more. The depth of data on the map is impressive, containing data from over 120 countries around the world. There’s even a place on the SWOT Website where you can participate by uploading information about your own turtle sightings.
Hosted by OBIS-SEAMAP, this new tool builds on previous work initiated and supported by WIDECAST. Now the WIDECAST Atlas and SWOT Database are displayed together, although the WIDECAST Atlas can still be accessed as a stand-alone application.
