STOQS (Spatial Temporal Oceanographic Query System) is a geospatial database software package designed for providing efficient access to in situ oceanographic measurement data. This efficient data access capability enables development of advanced visualization and analysis tools. One of them in wide use is a web-based user interface that follows Ben Shneiderman’s mantra (Overview first, zoom and filter, then details-on-demand) for exploring collections of observational data.
The source code is currently hosted at https://github.com/stoqs/stoqs. Please go to that site for wiki articles, issues, and complete download and installation instructions.
Development of STOQS continues with generous support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.
