This documents InfoBank's usage of "samples"
  • This is a presentation of where our scientists have done sampling geographically on Google Earth.
Samples Samples
  • Metadata (e.g.: current location, equipment type, sampling location) about each sample is viewable, including linkages to additional information. Note: Our goal is to provide similar access to all our data types, as we work out data volume and system limitation issues.

  • Sampling is done using a variety of types of cores, dredges, traps, nets, grabs, and bottles.

"Let your hook be always cast;
in the pool where you least expect it will be a fish." -- Ovid
