BASE Platform will provide satellite derived bathymetry data on a global scale using tidal modelling and crowdsourced data collection techniques to enhance accuracy.

The project is a 2 year research project funded by European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme that has the following aims:

  • Refine existing techniques in satellite derived and crowd sourced bathymetry
  • Develop methods and tools for merging data from these sources
  • Integrating with tidal modelling for reducing the depths to the local chart datum
  • Making data available through data portals
  • Working with end users of bathymetric data to carry out trials in a number of areas, and assess the results with them
