DIVER serves as a centralized data repository that integrates diverse environmental data sets collected from across the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. It allows scientists from different organizations and laboratories located across the country to upload field data, analyses, photographs, and other key information related to their environmental impact studies in a standardized format. DIVER brings together all of that validated information into a single, web-based tool.
You can use the tool's custom query and mapping interface, "DIVER Explorer," to find and download environmental impact data, ranging from oil chemistry to water toxicity and more.
DIVER Explorer provides both a data filter and review tools, which allow users to refine how they look for data and explore large data sets online. Query results are presented in an interactive dashboard, with a map, charts, table of results, metadata (data about the data), and sophisticated options for exporting the data.
