Great Lakes information in your hands.
Smart Great Lakes
Today’s connected region has a chance to improve our understanding, use, conservation, and management of the Great Lakes.
Lakebed 2030 brings together new and existing high-density bathymetric data to create a map of the lakefloor that’s easy to use and open to everyone.
A platform built for Great Lakes data and information
GLOS built Seagull to help connect people to the water like never before. A powerful, cloud-based platform, Seagull re-imagines how connected data becomes information and insights in peoples’ hands.
“The information given by these buoys is critical in our go/no go decision process. I work on [a rescue boat] owned and operated out of Mackinac Island. We depend on Buoy 45175 for real-time data on wave conditions and check it before every trip. The information given by these buoys is critical in our go/no go decision process.”
“I use the wave and wind data to plan boating. I usually boat between City Bay in North Hero and Butler Island. The buoy gives great information about local conditions.”
“The Great Lakes are the US and Canada’s greatest asset. What makes the Great Lakes strong is the ability to work and share together for the greater good. GLOS makes this possible.”

“I really appreciate the water temp readings on [buoy] 45026 as it gives me a very good prediction of water clarity on a shipwreck located about a mile away from the buoy.”
“Pretty much everyone I know who fishes for salmon uses the buoys religiously for that purpose. The temp profile is a very nice means to provide a starting point for temp thermoclines and possible depths to start running your downriggers based upon temp … Pretty much everyone I know who fishes for salmon uses the buoys religiously for that purpose.”
