About the Data Portal

The GGGI data portal is the largest global collection of ghost gear records thanks to the contributions frommultiple data partners around the world. Version 1.0 of the data portal, while ground-breaking at the timeof its launch, was primarily a proof of concept and could not provide the level of interaction with the data that was originally envisioned.
