September 19, 2017  - By

The Bathymetrics Data Portal allows users to search, purchase and automatically download water-depth information directly from an online store to their computer.

The Bathymetrics Data Portal is a combined offering by DHI, experts in water environments; TCarta, a global provider of marine geospatial products; and powered by DigitalGlobe, provider of high-resolution satellite imagery.

The dedicated commercial bathymetry portal offers continuously expanding 2m Bathymetry data in shallow water areas and a global database of interpolated 90m bathymetry. The portal allows users to search for data in their area of interest and purchase what they need. Data is priced by the square kilometer; the customer pays online with credit card and can download the data shortly after.

“We are very excited about this launch, as we have made direct access to off-the-shelf bathymetry data very easy and intuitive,” said DHI COO, Jacob Høst-Madsen. “The shop marks an important milestone in our continued quest to develop and offer high quality, affordable bathymetry data”

Bathymetric products are used extensively by organizations involved in energy infrastructure development, port construction, environmental monitoring, aquaculture planning and hydrodynamic modeling.

“The per-kilometer pricing model puts high-quality bathymetric data within easy reach of organizations of any size in all industries,” said TCarta CEO David Critchley. “One-person engineering shops, academic entities and other organizations with limited budgets can now engage in complex offshore projects.”

The portal is constantly being updated with new and improved data, providing users with the best available bathymetric information around the world.
