Mr. Mike McCann
Software Engineer, MBARI - Geospatial Working Group Co-Chair
As a software engineer in the Support Engineering Group, Mike develops and supports applications and systems for acquiring, storing, and visualizing MBARI collected data. There are interesting challenges in the effort to glean information from the diverse collections of data that MBARI has the unique capabilities to acquire.
To provide good service Mike draws on his background in physical oceanography, scientific visualization, and his volunteer service at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Before coming to MBARI in February 1996 Mike worked for 11 years at the Naval Postgraduate School, the last few years of which he spent analyzing and visualizing the output from various versions of eddy-resolving global ocean circulation models.
