The Smartmine Whale Tracker is an interactive animated map by earth sciences and technology company GeoEngineers.

The website uses data from the Cascadia Research group led by Dr. Robin Baird in Hawaii.  The website allows you to follow various types of whales around the islands while projecting wind and ocean currents.

The Smartmine Whale Tracker was launched last Thursday.  Click here to go to the whale tracking website.
