Anglo-American bathymetry accord

22 Feb 2017

TCarta Marine of Denver, Colorado and Proteus Geo of Oxford, UK have merged to form a new global mapping company providing bathymetric and marine data sets covering shallow coastal waters and continental shelf zones.

Known as TCarta Marine it will continue to maintain existing
bases in Colorado and Oxford for provision of existing products in addition to
new ones under development.

Primary markets served include engineering, oil and gas,
government and defence with further expansion planned for those concerned with
insurance, 3D modelling and aquacuture.  
Company President Kyle Goodrich says the aim will be to make it easier
for the worldwide marine community to obtain and use quality mapping data
derived from multispectral satellite imagery, including lower resolution
bathymetry for regional planning as well as high resolution seafloor modelling
for precise coastal engineering activities. Cheaper than traditional ship and
airborne bathymetric technologies, he adds.

The company plans to launch a new bathymetric product line
at this year’s three-day April Ocean Business event in Southampton, UK.
