Fugro has extended its integrated survey services with a new agreement with global specialist EOMAP.
The new agreement enables the creation of integrated bathymetric survey products that comprise elements from Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB), Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB) and traditional acoustic survey technologies.
“Teaming with EOMAP augments our considerable survey and satellite imagery capabilities and will allow a timely and cost-effective nearshore bathymetry review facility for clients whose own bathymetric holdings are either very old or very sparse – or both,” said Don Ventura, Hydrographic Business Development Manager at Fugro. “This service will help coastal zone management and engineering teams, environmental scientists and hydrographic agencies to focus on their immediate needs and to make more informed decisions on subsequent, efficient data acquisition and management.”
EOMAP’s technology platform, which will complement services already provided by Fugro, can process satellite images and deliver global bathymetric and benthic habitat data over the full range of temporal and spatial resolutions through its proprietary, sensor-independent Modular Inversion Processor (MIP).
“We are very pleased to provide our Satellite Derived Bathymetric products and services to Fugro,” said Matthew Bergin, Vice President of Business Development at EOMAP. “We believe that this agreement will create a unique, one-stop technology resource to meet the demanding requirements of both commercial and government customers.”
