This paper briefly presents the findings from a project to build a web-based system to draw abundance maps, visualising plankton data from the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) survey undertaken by the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS). The system implements a rich client application which draws maps from specific structured data transmitted from server side web service. An AJAX based model has been built for the whole system to provide better user interaction and features. A client cache is also implemented as a component in that model.
