“Story Maps” are a highly visual way of telling the story of scientific outputs using maps, images, video and text. In the COMPASS project this combination of interactive spatial data with narrative and other multimedia are used to inform and to inspire.
Over the 2020-21 winter the COMPASS project Data Management team have worked with researchers at Agri-food and Biosciences Insitute and Inland Fisheries Ireland to produce a Story Map highlighting some of the results from the project’s salmonids work package. It helps show the progression over 2018, 2019 and 2020 of the locations at which acoustic receivers were deployed in the marine environment to detect fish tagged by the project. The story map also shows the location of year’s tagging activity and details of the fish species and life stage of the fish tagged by catchment during these years.
