For WHOI personnel and vendors: COVID-19 Guidelines

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words…

May 1, 2006

ImageSource, a new database of images and illustrations representing years of ocean exploration, is now available to the public. Combining a number of visual libraries and collections at the Institution, WHOI ImageSource was created to provide the interested public with a source for their oceanographic visual needs.  ImageSource currently has more than 36,000 images accessible to the public, with more added every week.  Among the growing collection are current photographs of people, places, technology, events and projects; underwater photography
from Alvin, Jason and other exploration vehicles; illustrations from WHOI publications and presentations; and historical photographs of the Institution and the Woods Hole area.  The site is still in beta form and feedback is appreciated; comments can be sent to
