Hydrographic Surveying

70% of the world is covered in water, knowledge of the hidden features underneath the surface is more than a matter of curiosity. It is essential for the maintenance and protection of coastal environments and facilities, construction of bridges and underwater infrastructure, and the safe navigation of ships.

What We Do.

Our Purpose

Hydrographic surveying scans and measures the floor features of a body of water. The surveyed areas are utilized to support marine construction such as bridges, piers, seawalls, and docks. Hydrographic surveys also support dredging projects that help restore shorelines damaged from major storms and because of the creation of larger cruise and cargo ships dredging is required for deepening, expanding and building ports and enlarging channels for these larger ships.
