Marine Mammal Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS)

Model / Database

The Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) is a data management, statistical modeling, and decision support system that incorporates dedicated surveys from the Ocean Biogeographic Information System Spatial Ecological Analysis of Megavertebrate Populations (OBIS-SEAMAP) marine data archive to develop predictive habitat models and deliver the results with in a usable spatial format. The SDSS, a browser-based interactive map server, enables viewing of original survey effort, marine mammal observations, oceanographic imagery, and model results. Model results yield predictive maps for the likelihood of encounter as well as the associated standard error. Regions of interest can further be delineated within the SDSS for extracting summary statistical outputs, such as histograms and model statistics. The SDSS system allows users to view and query observation data and model results from this project as well as related SERDP projects and baseline geographic data.
