Help us get youngsters involved …
For aspiring explorers, National Geographic MapMaker Interactive provides an online map making tool to follow any ocean-going expedition.

How about building your own FS METEOR Expedition map by following the blog, enrich your map with the sampling stations positions, bad weather and superimpose them on sea surface temperature or chlorophyll ‘a’ layers, and comparing them with the daily satelite maps posted on the blog.

You can even print and place on you wall. Here is an example that tool 5 minutes to make.
