Summary:

Towson University’s Center for GIS (CGIS) teamed up with the Khaled Bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation, a private organization dedicated to conserving and protecting coral reefs in 2006. The goal was to build an ArcIMS website to share the Foundation’s research in the United States Virgin Islands. In 2009 the Foundation asked CGIS to provide a similar service to host research data for the Seychelles Islands, an Island nation off the coast of eastern Africa. That application uses ArcGIS Server, the new programming APIs (application programming interface) for Adobe Flex. The new viewer was such a hit that CGIS has been asked to update the Virgin Islands app to the new technology. The video includes a brief introduction to the Living Oceans Foundation and a demo of the viewer’s capabilities.
