MDMAP Data Analysis Examples and Templates
The MDMAP data analysis templates provide an opportunity for interested volunteers, students, partners, or organizations to easily visualize shoreline monitoring data, downloaded as a .csv file from the Reporting Tab on the MDMAP database. The excel templates will get users from raw data to visualizing marine debris survey findings with as few 'clicks' as possible.
The sections below provide files for accumulation and standing stock survey sites (excel templates, figure descriptions, and examples of each). Instructions for how to use the templates are provided in the first tab of the excel file. Tips for saving and printing your figures are provided at the bottom of the page.
