The study of the underwater depth of an ocean’s, lake’s, or river’s bottom is known as bathymetry mapping. In other terms, bathymetry is the topography or hypsometry of the ocean. In order to support the safety of surface or subsurface navigation, bathymetric charts are frequently developed.
They normally represent seabed relief or terrain as contour lines and specified depths, and they typically also provide surface navigational information. To depict the depths, bathymetric maps may also employ a digital terrain model and artificial lighting techniques.
A global relief model is occasionally produced by combining topography information with global bathymetry. In paleobathymetry, past underwater depths are investigated. Seafloor mapping, seabed mapping, seafloor imaging, and seabed imaging are all synonyms.
Bathymetric measurements are made using a variety of techniques, including depth sounding, From buoys and satellite altimetry to sonar and Lidar technologies.
Many approaches have benefits and drawbacks, and the particular approach used will depend on the size of the study region, available funds, the level of measurement accuracy sought, and other factors. In many places, the ocean floor is less measured than the terrain of Mars despite current computer-based studies.
The Global Bathymetric mapping system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
With the launch of AQUAMAPPER by TOPODRONE advances airborne bathymetric surveying. AQUAMAPPER, a UAV-based solution for bathymetric surveying and marine building, is introduced by TOPODRONE, a Swiss-based designer and manufacturer of high-precision LiDAR technology for installation on drones, cars, and backpacks.
In order to provide a complete digital twin of the area under study, the novel multitasking data collection device and TOPODRONE LiDAR ULTRA technology were successfully used for airborne surveying at a highway construction project in Romania, EU.
AQUAMAPPER is a brand-new piece of hardware that TOPODRONE created internally and adds to their full suite of photogrammetry, LiDAR, and bathymetry surveying solutions. This new device offers a combination of high speed efficiency and accuracy when placed on a UAV.
The DJI Matrice 300 RTK is compatible with this PPK-ready solution. A bathymetric survey of the open ocean up to a depth of 100 metres, sediment quantity surveys and calculations, and routine maintenance surveys of storage pools are only a few examples of the application area
