More Snowy Owls...the Snow Storm Project

Snowy owls made news again today with this incredible (data made public) website called Project Snow Storm. It was featured this morning on National Public Radio as well as being exhibited at the 2014 Annual Birders Meeting (last Saturday, March 8th). 

The project plots real GIS data from radio tagged snowy owls and overlays their movement on Google Maps. If instant world messaging via email, video chatting over Skype, online books and videos haven't made the internet incredible to you then watching real life data of animal movement may be the thing to sell you on this whole Website thing.
