We are working on a new visualization system.  The new system keeps many of the capabilities of the old "vis" system, but works much better on phones and tablets.  We've tried to streamline and modernize things as well. Take a look at the "beta" version of the system at:  https://visbeta.globe.gov Remember - 3 steps to visualizing your data: 1) What data do you want to visualize (Protocol Layers) 2) What date do you want to use to look at the data  3) Click on the data point on the map to see the data. Tell us what you think!
