Ocean Health Index

Visit Site

NiJeL worked with Conservation International to help build the Ocean Health Index, a project to evaluate the condition of marine ecosystems according to 10 human goals, which represent the key ecological, social, and economic benefits that a healthy ocean provides. A healthy ocean is one that can sustainably deliver a range of benefits to people now and in the future. A goal scores highest when the maximum sustainable benefit is achieved through methods that do not compromise the ocean’s ability to deliver that benefit in the future. The Index score is the average of the 10 goal scores. NiJeL updated the work of the talented GIS guru, Lee Altman, and the fantastic design team at Radical Media.

Your Data, Transformed

At NiJeL, we transform our partners' data into stunning visualizations such as dynamic maps and easy-to-understand dashboards, with real-time charts and graphs. We develop custom, flexible databases to improve our partners' efficiency and maximize their community impact.

Many organizations feel overwhelmed by the need to organize their own data while also paying attention to new data sources, such as social media or online government and NGO databases. At NiJeL, we work in close collaboration with our partners to make sense of and modernize their data so they can harness actionable information from their many data streams.

Our custom systems for data visualization, analysis, and participation enable organizations to utilize various information streams, visualize and analyze their data quickly, and open two-way lines of communication and participation with the communities they serve and the public.
