Bathymetry survey by satellite

For the consideration of options for a marine development on the island of Crete, an up-to-date bathymetric survey of large shallow water area was required.

This was performed using satellite image analysis which determines the depth of water at every pixel, giving a wide coverage in a short space of time. 

Highlights

  • Bathymetry survey required for a large shallow water area off the north coast of Crete.

  • Water depth at every pixel location determined for wide coverage.

  • Completed in a fraction of the time of an in situ survey.
