EO Crowd
EO Crowd - Looking at new methods in hydrography and bathymetry Hydrographic surveying has been centered on the use of survey vessels with single or multi beam depth sounders since the transition from lead line, compass and sextant to depth sounder and satellite positioning in the 1960’s. Whilst accurate, this is expensive, and even the IHO states that over 90% of our seas are not adequately surveyed. New methods of hydrographic surveying are arriving, such as crowd sourced bathymetry (CSB) and satellite derived bathymetry (SDB), and with the drive for Open Data many scientists and government departments are making data sets freely available. EO Crowd is a project looking at these new developments, at how their adoption can be increased, and how they fit with current practices. It is being executed jointly by TeamSurv and Telespazio Vega, who are experienced in crowd sourced bathymetry and in marine applications of Earth Observation data respectively, and is being supported by the European Space Agency.

EO Crowd Workshop

On 29th September we will be holding a user workshop, open to all potential users of crowd sourced bathymetry, satellite derived bathymetry or Open Data. The workshop will be held at Telespazio’s offices in central London, as well as over the internet using Webex for those who cannot attend in person. 14:00 - 15:00 Presentations and Q&A for online and those present 15:00 - 16:00 Ongoing discussion for those present. If you are interested in attending, please contact us.

Shallow Survey 2015

TeamSurv will be at the Shallow Survey conference, held in Plymouth from 14 to 18 September. This conference, held every 3 years, is the leading international conference for hydrographic surveying in coastal waters. Tim Thornton and Sarah Monger will be manning the TeamSurv stand, and we look forward to talking to you both about TeamSurv and about the EO Crowd project.
