WebMapper is a Java applet for finding Paleoclimate data held at the World Data Center for Paleoclimatology. Currently you can use WebMapper to locate and view the WDC's pollen, tree-ring, ice core, plant macrofossil, paleocean, phenology, and coral data.
With WebMapper you can zoom the map and select individual sites. For each site, WebMapper displays summary information (e.g., site name, investigator, latitude, longitude (in decimal degrees), place, altitude, the number of samples, variables, radiocarbon dates, species, date ranges, etc.); the publications associated with the site; diagrams or plots. In the future WebMapper will also provide query capabilities.
|Windows||To run WebMapper you must be using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher (see http://www.microsoft.com), or Netscape 4.5 or higher (see http://www.netscape.com), or Mozilla 1.x or higher (see http://www.mozilla.org).|
