Rapid access to shallow-water bathymetry data
One Germany based marine satellite information company has launched a commercial online store for global shallow-water bathymetry to better serve its customers.
The EOStore Bathymetry provides rapid access to search for and request high quality data, for which the company says demand is on the rise.
“The EOStore Bathymetry allows every coastal engineer, modeller or surveyor to rapidly access up-to-date shallow water bathymetric data,” said Knut Hartmann, COO EOMAP.
It enables you to get the bathymetry data you need – even data you could otherwise not get -, so you can plan and execute projects accurately, effectively lowering the project risk level,”
Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB) is now established as a valuable tool for the surveying, planning and management of coastal and offshore sites.
Unlike other survey methods, SDB can provide shallow-water bathymetric data worldwide without the need for a physical presence in the area of interest offering a rapid and cost-attractive solution for the coastal, offshore and survey industries.
EOMAP said it has developed the bathymetry store in response to feedback from industry which has largely been that users need to understand the global feasibility of SDB methods and ways to search for and request the data.
EOStore Bathymetry offers different horizontal spatial resolutions of the bathymetric grid of 2m to 15m. This makes it flexible and fit for purpose for surveying, as well as for but also for planning and modelling purposes.
EOMAP is a global service provider of satellite-derived aquatic information for the coastal and offshore industry and government clients.
