NASA press release for Lynch Lab-developed penguin monitoring tool

Latest press release from NASA about the Mapping Application for Penguin Populations and Projected Dynamics (MAPPPD) tool, developed as a part of a NASA-funded project. The development of MAPPPD was led by lab PI Heather Lynch and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Scientist Mathew Schwaller, with the goal of making scientific data more accessible to Antarctic scientists and decision makers. The tool will provide necessary information for key conservation-decisions in the region.

MAPPPD allows users to explore population trends in different regions of Antarctic by selecting an area of interest. It is also designed to incorporate information from citizen scientists in order to ‘fill in the gaps’ in knowledge in the Antarctic.
