Seagull

Seagull—a powerful, cloud-based platform 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.

Seagull enables observers to:

  • Understand live lake conditions and make informed decisions
  • Contextualize information using search, a beautiful map, and simple visualizations
  • Easily connect a device or data source and share it with thousands of other people
  • Track their buoy, sensor, or other observing platform in real-time

Legacy Apps

Some legacy applications will be phased out as Seagull adds functionality.
