North Pacific Pelagic Seabird Database Visualization Tool (NPPSD_viz)

May 20, 2024

Code for R Shiny application to facilitate visualizing and subsetting the North Pacific Pelagic Seabird Database (NPPSD) using an interactive leaflet map. Database records can be filtered by higher taxonomy (bird vs. mammal observations), family, species, primary investigator, survey type date, and location. Users have the option to automatically zoom to the selected subset, or to zoom in to an area of interest before plotting available data for that area. There is also the option to plot locations where surveys took place, but no observations were recorded that match the user's selected filters. The app contains tabs for displaying the selected data in map or table form, and a third tab displays simple summary statistics. The selected dataset can be downloaded as a .csv file.
