Among the SERDP data, only the outputs of the NODES Density Models are downlodable through the online download wizard. For other model outputs, please contact us.
For the OBIS-SEAMAP data, the observation records and effort / telemetry tracks that are currently on the map can be downloaded as a CSV or an ESRI shapefile. Data follow the standardized OBIS-SEAMAP schema and not from the data originally provided by data providers. They include publicly available fields: locations, date/time of the observations and the species identification. See below for more details about the fields.
Also see "FAQ" at the bottom of the page.
The zipped download file includes the following files depending on the type (platform) of the dataset, "Data Selection" option and the page you downloaded the data on (i.e. Dataset Page, Species Page orAdvannced Search).
|Page / Data Selection||"All points" on Dataset Page||"All points" on Species Page||"On map" on any pages|
|Data type||Observation (boat, plane)||Telemetry (tag)||Mix
|Point telemetry location||No||Yes||Yes, if exists||Yes, if exists|
|Ship/plane effort lines||Yes, if available||No||No||No|
|Animal track lines||No||Yes, if available||No||No|
|File name|| seamapxxx.shp
'xxx' in 'seamapxxx' indicates the dataset id, which you can see 'SEAMAP ID' row in the Dataset Page (effort or telemetry track lines has a different ID) as well as [dataset_id] field in the CSV / shapefile.
'yyy' in the csv file for a species indicates the taxonomic serial number of the species.
'zzz' in the csv file for "On map" downloads indicates an unique ID assigned by the system.
Observation and telemetry point data
The CSV and shapefile have the same field definition. Ignore [Type] for CSV.
|dataset_id||Long integer||Dataset ID.|
|row_id||Text||Row id unique among the OBIS-SEAMAP database.|
|latitude||Double||Latitude of the point in decimal degrees.|
|longitude||Double||Longitude of the point in decimal degrees.|
|sp_code||Text||Species code that the data provider used to identify the species.|
|scientific||Text||Species scientific name.|
|common||Text||Species English common name, if any.|
|tsn||Long integer||Taxonomic Serial Number for the species organized by Integrated Taxonomic Information System.|
|count||Long integer||Number of animals observed at the sighting. May have different definition, count methods. Contact the data provider for more detail. This is always 1 (one) for telemetry data.|
|series_id||Text||Identification of the animal. For telemetry or PhotoID data only.|
|obs_date||Date||Date of the observation. Time is not included.|
|date_time||Text||Date and time of the observation in "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss" format.
Note: An ESRI shapefile can not contain both date and time in a Date type field.
|last_mod||Text||Date and time the data was last modified. Note that the data may be updated due to error correction or other reasons.|
|provider||Text||The institution name of the data provider.|
|owner||Text||The data provider expressed as an OBIS-SEAMAP user account.|

Effort and animal track lines
Ship/plane effort line and animal track line data have the same field definition.
|dataset_id||Long integer||Dataset ID seen in 'Effort'/'Trackline' row in Dataset page. This is different from that for the related observation/telemetry dataset.|
|row_id||Text||Row id unique in the OBIS-SEAMAP database.|
|series_id||Text||Identification of the animal for telemetry data.|
|lon_s||Double||Longitude of the beginning point of the line segment in decimal degrees.|
|lat_s||Double||Latitude of the beginning point of the line segment in decimal degrees.|
|lon_e||Double||Longitude of the end point of the line segment in decimal degrees.|
|lat_e||Double||Latitude of the end point of the line segment in decimal degrees.|
|date_s||Date||Date of the beginning point of the line segment.|
|date_e||Date||Date of the end point of the line segment.|
|datetime_s||Text||Date and time of the beginning point of the line segment.|
|datetime_e||Text||Date and time of the end point of the line segment.|
|length_km||Double||The length of the segment in km.|
|speed_kph||Double||Averaged speed in km/h at which the ship/plane/animal travels along the line segment.|
