As the quantity and complexity of scientific data expand, accessible interfaces for data manipulation and analysis are needed to support broad and efficient data use. The Isoscapes Modeling, Analysis, and Prediction (IsoMAP; http://isomap.org) Web-based geographical information system (GIS) gateway is an example of such a resource. Recently launched with support from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Biological Infrastructure, IsoMAP enables analysis and integration of diverse light stable isotope and environmental data by a broad-based user community. It provides an intuitive, spatial interface that streamlines data analysis, modeling, and exploration in research ranging from greenhouse gas biogeochemistry to food science.
