Shiny apps for acoustic surveys of Michigan and Huron

Two new apps have been published to allow people to visualize acoustic fish density time series and coarse-scale (stat district level) spatial patterns for data from 2004 to 2015. David Warner, Research Fisheries Biologist U.S.G.S. Great Lakes Science Center said they will be adding 2016 data as soon as the reports are through USGS review process.

Feel free to share this with the LMTC, LHTC, LHC, or the public.
 
The link to the GLSC web site that has the Shiny link (along with two others) is below.  The app with acoustic data is the third link in the list.
