What is it?

Data Preview gives you at-a-glance updates of data from the previous day and month. It allows you easy access to recent Oceans 3.0 data.

Why is this useful?

Data Preview was pioneered by the VENUS team to make it simple for anyone to access recent data. Data Preview is a simple, uncomplicated way to explore ocean data. Data Search and Plotting Utility tools have advanced features for ocean researchers, but take some training to use.
