Hydrographic Surveying: Where Do We Stand

Hydrographic Surveying: Where Do We StandHydrographic surveying is highly specific and requires a suite of advanced acquisition and positioning sensors attached to a mobile survey platform as well as sophisticated software to allow the correct combination of all the data. For those within the industry, the advances over the last decade may feel more like an evolution rather than a revolution. If we look back one, two or even three decades we can see the enormous leap that hydrographic surveying has taken. Where do we stand, and what can we expect for the near future? In this article we will look at the present compared to the past and will try to give an insight into the near and more distant future. Read on...
