You can use these Anaylsis Tools:

  • to make maps and to plot coastal movements of satellite tagged marine mammals using latitude and longitude,
  • to track your course using a GPS with your powerbook on a whale watch boat, and
  • to save your data and sighting information on land or near shore whale watching coastal areas.
