Visualizing Oceans of Data: Ocean Tracks – A Case Study

In 2013, the Oceans of Data Institute (ODI) released Visualizing Oceans of Data: Educational Interface Design report, which offers a set of guidelines for designing interactive tools to engage students with data. ODI applied these guidelines during the development of Ocean Tracks, an online interface that enables students to explore the migratory behavior of large, open ocean predators using authentic datasets. Visualizing Oceans of Data: Ocean Tracks – A Case Study discusses the design and development of the Ocean Tracks interface, and reflects on the design guidelines in light of students' and teachers' experiences with the interface.
