On April 28, 2022 the Great Lakes Observing System launched Seagull, a powerful, cloud-based platform for Great Lakes data and information.

Seagull is the source of IOOS certified data and metadata produced within the Great Lakes from observing platforms like buoys, weather stations, as well as model nowcasts and forecasts. Seagull streamlines the process of connecting a data source so users can visualize it, learn from it, and share it on-demand. It is free to use and open to everyone!

GLOS staff will provide an in-depth look into Seagull functionalities from high to low-level, with demonstrated use cases. This working session is for interested stakeholders to connect with GLOS and Seagull developers directly and provide feedback.

Planned demonstrations and discussion include:

  • Highly-anticipated features like model layer point-query, API usage, and observation submission.
  • Challenges and development since launch in April 2022.
  • 2023 Goals.
  • Possible developer community discussion: shared basemaps, community science layers, and data sources.

Seagull’s user interface recently won an International Design Award

GLOS worked with DIG, a West Michigan human-centered design company, to create Seagull’s simple, user-first interface. It makes observing information accessible to scientists and non-scientists.
