Interactive map launched for NARW

513 NARW

 

The Government of Canada has launched WhaleMap, a new interactive mapping tool that displays the recent known locations of the whales as they travel in Canadian waters. The map displays near real-time whale detection information provided by various partners who contribute airborne, vessel and acoustic glider detections of the North Atlantic right whale.  By providing this information on the web, partners will be better able to work together and ocean industries and members of the public will have rapid access to the most comprehensive information available.  Users will be able to view recent right whale detections and also customize the map to display various surveillance efforts and protection measures. The project received $57, 500 in funding support from the Oceans Protection Plan.
