A screenshot of the new interactive research map.
Researchers from the College of Marine and Earth Studies (CMES) have circled the globe studying subjects as diverse as hydrothermal vents deep on the floor of the Pacific Ocean to the tiniest microorganisms in the Earth’s frigid polar regions. Now, visitors to the CMES web site can follow these exciting projects using a dynamic new map that tracks CMES scientists’ work.
The global map, which is a Google Maps-driven application, is located in the research section of the web site and shows where CMES research is taking place using place markers that are color-coded according to the type of work being done in each location. Users can click on the markers to get information about specific projects, including overviews of the work, participants, images, and related web links. Additional links below the map automatically zoom into specific regions of interest, like the Delaware Bay. The map will be constantly updated by the researchers to reflect their most current work.
