webODV provides online Ocean Data View (ODV)
services like the analysis, exploration and visualization
of oceanographic and other environmental data.
webODV is developed at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI)
in Bremerhaven, Germany.
GEOTRACES is an international research programme
that aims to improve an understanding of
biogeochemical cycles in the oceans.
The webODV data extraction service provides an alternative to the full package downloads by providing cruise, domain and variable selection functionality.
The webODV data exploration service (ODV-online) provides analysis and visualization functionality
over the Internet. Browser window
user interface and functionality mimick interface and
functionality of the popular Ocean Data View software
