View US-Funded Research Across the Arctic with ARMAP

June 12, 2017
By Jessica Rohde

A new and improved version has just been released for the Arctic Research Mapping Application (ARMAP),

  • See who is doing what where in US-funded Arctic research -- with logistics bases and details for over 2700 projects funded by NSF and 17 other agencies since 1997
  • Browse project locations on a circumarctic basemap with links to more information
  • Search and Filter by discipline, funding agency, program, project title, investigator name, region, year, etc.
  • View related map layers such as ship tracks, research observatories, and medical facilities
  • Use the ARMAP Viewer for science planning, logistics coordination, collaboration, and more

ARMAP fits within an interlinked Project-Data life cycle, focusing on award-level information with a web map app, various science layers, text search tool, summary animation, hierarchical ISO metadata, and interoperable web services. The new Viewer is based on HTML5 and JavaScript for improved Search and Filter functions as well as a clean, fast, and modern user experience.  A companion application, the Arctic Observing Viewer, encompasses over 13,000 specific monitoring sites with links to data. Together they span from funding to results.
