The mapping tool provides quick visualizations of distribution and abundance of seabirds, whales and other wildlife from ACCESS cruises. We share data with researchers, graduate students and agencies in the region, and we are making data available in the Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS) Data Portal. Please contact Dr. Jaime Jahncke to develop new collaborations and use ACCESS for analysis and publications.
Mapping Tool Instructions: Choose a data source and the time period you are interested in, then choose a species. The map will redraw, indicating locations where the selected species was found. You can click on a point to get more information about it, or click within the polygons to get density estimates within the shaded National Marine Sanctuary boundaries.
