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.
