‘VisCoral’ represents the ecosystem changes in the Pacific Ocean. Our system allows users to explore the temporal changes of environmental data such as temperature, CO2 level, sea level and precipitation and their impact on the health of coral reefs and neighbor marine species such as coral fish. VisCoral is composed of multi-view interactive visualization, which features a timeline of environmental data, a table view of species data, and the simulation of ecosystem generated according to the data. We hope this InfoVis system will help students or the general public learn about how environmental changes are directly connected to the living condition of ocean creatures.
