Graphing Tool | MARINe

The Graphing Tool allows creation of customized plots for specific site/species combinations.

We are extremely grateful to Michael Frenock (PISCO - Oregon State University) for the development and continual enhancement of this application.

Graphing Tool Instructions

Use the "Map Display Options" on the LEFT side of the Graphing Tool to display a specific site, or to filter sites based on the region, MPA status, survey type, etc. When a specific site is selected, summary information is displayed underneath the map, with a link to the specific site page. Use the "polygon" feature to draw a polygon on the map to select a region of interest and then display the sites located within that region.

Use the "Graph Type" options on the RIGHT side of the Graphing Tool to display Biodiversity Survey or Long-Term Monitoring graphs. Different graphs can be displayed based on the survey type (Long-Term or Biodiversity), and by the method within each survey type (Point Contact vs. Quadrat vs. Swath data for Biodiversity; Percent Cover vs. Species Counts vs. Species Size for Long-Term). These dynamic graphs are a powerful way to view data for the specific site and species of interest.
