GoMOOS runs primarily on the FreeBSD operating system and operates using an open-source model, both because the software was ideal for the needs of the project and because it invokes the spirit of collaboration and support on which GoMOOS was founded.
Before the use of GoMOOS buoys, there was no effective means of determining oceanic conditions, save for heading out to sea to collect measurements manually.
Bogden cites cooperation with other agencies and projects as vital to most effectively using data collected through GoMOOS.
