Deep Sea ID

We are contributing to a global database of marine species and have created an iOS app for deep sea species.

Deep Sea ID iOS app

As a part of the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS), our team has contributed to the World Register of Deep Sea Species (WoRDSS).

The WoRMS database was launched in December 2012. The unique feature of an associated iOS app was released the following March. Deep Sea ID was the first app developed by the Natural History Museum's Science Group.

The app gives offline access to information on more than 20,000 deep sea species and to a collection of more than 350 high-resolution images.

Designed for the scientific community, the app also offers a visually engaging tour of the deep for educators and an interested public.
