Crowdsourcing to Improve Bathymetric Data

  16/07/2010
TeamSurv is a project using crowdsourcing to improve bathymetric data in coastal waters. Participants log data from their vessel's instruments whilst going about their normal activities at sea, and then upload the data to the project web site for processing.



The company have spent the first few months setting up the infrastructure and developing hardware and software loggers, and are now recruiting volunteers, as well as continuing software development for reduction of the soundings.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
