Infographics are designed to let you examine the data that we're collecting as part of our Super Storm Sandy research in a more intuitive way. You can interact with the data, find out what we're doing in your area, and what information we have available to help you understand the current state of the Super Storm Sandy response. They also try to show you how we deal with the data here at CCOM so you can understand what we're trying to do with our research.

One simple example of this is to provide an interactive map with information on marine debris that's been reported in each area, as shown below. When zoomed out, outlines of areas that contain information are shown; clicking on an outline provides markers for the various marine debris objects reported in each area, color-coded by type. Mousing-over the objects provides more detailed information on the items in the area.
