From the August newsletter.

Todd Miller, a researcher at UW-Milwaukee’s Zilber School of Public Health has been leading his lab to build a new type of low-cost buoy for the Great Lakes. They’re called Panther buoys.

These platforms are built using open-source technologies with documentation and code published online for anyone to use and reproduce. And last year, GLOS funded several via Smart Great Lakes mini-grants.

This was a new sort of connection for Seagull, but recently, GLOS staff was able to help build a direct connection so data flows securely to Seagull. These buoys also send data to other services, including UWM’s own Lakestat page.

On Seagull:
Nicolet Bay
Sturgeon Bay
Mawickwe Bay
Discovery World
More coming soon.
