We present an initial attempt for the development of a distributed and scalable GIS-like tool for the storage, selection and visualization of 4D marine datasets. The aim of this tool is to standardize the variety of data available for the water column and support non-technical marine biologists in manipulating 4D marine datasets. The tool is developed towards answering specific environmental and biological questions regarding ocean processes and essential fish habitat mapping in three dimensions.
