In the Global Oceanographic Data Archive Center (GODAC), Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), the “Deep Sea Video Database", "Deep Sea Video Cast" and "Deep Sea Image Database" provided users with access to deep sea research videos and photos which were obtained by JAMSTEC submersibles on the Internet.
We have developed the new site, "JAMSTEC E-library of Deep-sea Images" which has integrated those sites and renewed video streaming and photo browsing services.
On this site, users are able to search for videos and photos by content icons (ex. living organism name, geology, etc.), classification tree and by selecting submersible’s dive points on the Google Maps.
