updated with medical facilities and ship tracks across the Arctic


Users can navigate to areas of interest and explore information about field-based scientific research in the Arctic. Research sites are shown as points with links to details about project investigator, discipline, funding program, year, related websites, and other elements. ARMAP includes satellite imagery, other base maps, access to scientific datasets, and map layers for places, roads, and natural features. Users can print or export maps for presentations, export selected data, select from a “map gallery” of predefined images, or link directly to a variety of database web services. ARMAP strives to benefit scientists, science logistics experts, educators and the general public.
