      Abstract: 
        This dataset contains a collection of known point locations of 
        melon-headed whales identified through direct human observation via 
        shipborne and aerial surveys. This can be useful for assessing species 
        abundance, population structure, habitat use, and behavior. This 
        collection is aggregated from multiple data sources and survey periods 
        listed below. Each data point contains attributes for further 
        information about the time and source of the observation. This dataset 
        was compiled by the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) 
        and may be updated in the future if additional data sources are 
        acquired.
        
        Cascadia Research Collective (CRC) has been undertaking shipborne 
        surveys for odontocetes in Hawaiian waters since 2000. Two populations 
        of melon-headed whales have been identified in Hawaii: a smaller 
        population resident to shallow waters off the northwest side of Hawaii 
        Island and a larger population that moves among multiple Hawaiian 
        islands and offshore. In addition, Dr. Joseph Mobley of the Marine 
        Mammal Research Consultants (MMRC) led aerial surveys for cetaceans in 
        Hawaiian waters from 1993-2003.

      Purpose: 
        PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to 
        support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in 
        the U.S. Pacific Islands region.

      Abstract: 
        This dataset contains a collection of known point locations of 
        melon-headed whales identified through direct human observation via 
        shipborne and aerial surveys. This can be useful for assessing species 
        abundance, population structure, habitat use, and behavior. This 
        collection is aggregated from multiple data sources and survey periods 
        listed below. Each data point contains attributes for further 
        information about the time and source of the observation. This dataset 
        was compiled by the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) 
        and may be updated in the future if additional data sources are 
        acquired.
        
        Cascadia Research Collective (CRC) has been undertaking shipborne 
        surveys for odontocetes in Hawaiian waters since 2000. Two populations 
        of melon-headed whales have been identified in Hawaii: a smaller 
        population resident to shallow waters off the northwest side of Hawaii 
        Island and a larger population that moves among multiple Hawaiian 
        islands and offshore. In addition, Dr. Joseph Mobley of the Marine 
        Mammal Research Consultants (MMRC) led aerial surveys for cetaceans in 
        Hawaiian waters from 1993-2003.

                Use of WMS-C is similar to traditional WMS but with the 
                addition of the "tiled=true" parameter, which triggers 
                GeoServer to pull map tiles from GeoWebCache if they have been 
                previously generated. This can dramatically improve 
                performance, especially for larger datasets. Supported map 
                formats include JPEG and PNG. Supported info formats include 
                GeoJSON, GML, HTML, and plain text.
