EWU is creating a 3D point network with 52 million points and six crucial variable measures over 50 years of the ocean's head of waters. The oceans are crucial for the well-being of the earth and its people. It is the storage place for almost all the waters on the earth; it is the climatic and meteorological conditions; it is an important resource for nourishment and it is the motorway on which navigation is carried out.
Nevertheless, surprisingly little is known about the ocean. Just 5 to 10 per cent of the world' s seas have been studied in detail. In order to improve this state of affairs, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), an international alliance seeking to find groundbreaking answers to today's international problems, has launched a map of the world' s ecological marine entities (EMUs). The map will help to make good use of marine ressources and preserve pollution by offering a frame for process comprehension and detection of changes.

EWU is creating a 3D point network with 52 million points and six major variable measures over 50 years of the ocean's head of waters.
EMU was a major information exercise. WWUs consist of aggregate and calculation on an unparalleled scale. What is more, the WWUs are a set of aggregations and calculations. The climatological observations were at ¼ degrees by ¼ degrees (about 27 km x 27 km at the equator) extracting interval values at varying degrees, before they were analysed in space and bundled with a multi-variate statistic methodology and then validated by major oceansographers.
This results in a standardised, robust and environmentally sound sets of ocean eco-system entities that can be used as a base map with other GIS-overslays prepared by various organisations for studying impacts on global warming, prioritising biological diversity, conducting assessments of global warming, conducting research, and carrying out ocean governance. Strict statistic clusters have resulted in 37 physical and chemistry separated volume domains in which the most likely chemistry to trigger reactions to the eco-system is available to all interested conservationist organisations, academics or civilists.
These findings allow individual users to measure indicator of either favourable or unfavourable trend and use information to make sound choices about the conservation of the marine environment. "EMU Explorer applications are designed to explore the EMU and NOAA World Ocean Atlas initial information using a web navigator or portable devices.
NOAA's binding World Ocean Atlas is the main resource for EMUs. EMU is an open, available datasource that can provide a foundation for further ocean research by giving researchers and nature conservators better insight into knowledge of maritime eco-systems. EMU's Explore applications are designed to explore EMU and the World Ocean Atlas initial information using a web navigator or portable instrument.
Analyzing the whole head of groundwater is a 3D natural process, and the EMU Explorer applications offer this third level, making complicated information more comprehensible and making it available for use in classrooms and in the fields. With easy retrieval of this information, EMU Explorer is a high-performance teaching aid that can be integrated into class-room and lab practices, and illustrates the relationship between people' action and impact on the environment.
Though the EMU Explorers and EMU Coatings were made available in the Living Atlas of the World in 2016, the EMU Explorers will continue. There are plans for a worldwide delimitation of the ecosystem of the Coastal Units (ECUs) with a much higher degree of geographical detail and of the environmental eco-systems (EFUs). Creating EMU is a huge leap towards not only fully charting the ocean, but also learning how the planet works.
With the Eco Tapestry application, ELU files can be browsed in a web navigator and as a layer in the Living Atlas of the World. Some of these include: Python research with ArcGIS; building an R-GIS ecosystem communities; advancing citizenship through applications such as Survey123 for ArcGIS; and participation in the Federal Geographic Information Committee's Open Water Date Initiative.
WWUs are the result of cooperation. Upload the EMU files. Up-to-date information about the EWU Commonwealth can be found in GeoNet.
