AAM Launches Shallow Water Survey Service - 13/05/2013
Geospatial services company AAM, headquartered in Australia, has launched a dedicated shallow water survey team, with hydrographic surveying expert Andy Waddington appointed to lead the team. Under Waddington’s leadership, the newly formed team will provide innovative geospatial solutions to support government, environment, resources and infrastructure projects in shallow water environments.
The announcement follows AAM’s merger with Vekta in April 2013 and represents another investment in Australia’s fast-growing geospatial sector.
A former ship’s captain in the Royal Navy, Waddington has been active in the development of bathymetric Lidar and remote sensing surveying techniques, particularly in shallow water and the near-shore region.
He is a qualified FiG/IHO Cat A hydrographic surveyor with 25 years of surveying experience, including two years on exchange with the Royal Australian Navy. He also holds a BSc in Systems Management and an MSc in GIS and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors, the Nautical Institute and Chairman of the Hydrographic Society (UK) SW Region.Last updated: 20/02/2020
