Visualising research data
with geographic information
Matt has a huge collection of marine data that is logged with GPS coordinates, pictures, videos and sound recordings, so it was an ideal candidate for plotting onto a map.
How it works
Our database back-end allows researchers to upload datasets where our system will automatically process them for display on the website
We use a standard called GeoJSON to tell our mapping system how and where to plot data
We have tag and link detection allowing us to embed video and images onto different map layers
How Can Switch Systems Help You?
Make your research more explorable - we can help bring your data to a wider audience using interactive real-time visualisations, spatial mapping and mashups with other sets of open data.
