The Flanders Marine Institute ( VLIZ ) has become the biggest coordination and information platform for marine research in Flanders. Since its creation in 1999 VLIZ is a hub for marine and coastal research. VLIZ works as a partner in various projects and networks promoting the international image of Flemish marine scientific research and international marine education. From this initiative VLIZ created the portal website lifewatch.be.Lifewatch is a portal for marine research. From this website researchers have access to a large amount of information on marine and coastal research . On the website researchers can obtain a list of applications that could assist them in the research they are performing.The website should have an additional application that could determine seasonal variations of species. Based on different criteria mapping all sorts of species and their seasonal variation should be displayed clearly. This way marine scientists can make predictions when, why and how marine species will spread in the past and in the future.
