Database

Over the past 10 years, CAGE has led 68 multidisciplinary expeditions for both research and education. In total, CAGE has covered 88,500 nmi (164,000 Km) in approximately 19,500 hours. A complete overview of CAGE cruise activities is available on CAGE’s interactive geodata web map. The map is open for all, and anybody can visualize or download descriptive metadata. The cruise reports, in addition to the research data (if deposited in Open Data Repositories) from associated cruises are accessible to all through the links on the website.

How to use the geodata website

The geodata map is intuitive and interactive, working with clickable objects. It consists of 19 layers for each type of survey (i.e., CTD, Multibeam, etc) and each of these contains sub-layers with the collection years and associated research expeditions. 

Below is some information and tips to help guide you through the layers and features on the geodata website.
