In August this Year a group of young students from the German Europen School Singapore tagged a whale shark with an sattelite-tag, where the data now being published in the web trough a google earth KML-file. This 7 meter long male Shark, named "Schroeder" now is on it's way from the Seychelles to - maybe - Somalia (Afrika). During the last few weeks you could see a move of over 700 KM ....

The KML File is updated via a Database and PHP script every time the sattelite carrier sends new data - about once a day.

You can download the KML file here (http://www.seeadlerpost.com/geocache/whaleshark.kmz)

For more information please visit the project website (http://www.seeadlerpost.com)!

I wonder how many people in Whale research are looking at this...
This is good !

Japanese might not like it as it limits the need for them to take whales for "research"....

well its going to be a great research tool !!

The tool might also be great for an immersive around the table educational experiences where students get to "sketch" upon the earth and participate in interactive discussions about sociology, etc.???
