Reef monitoring is central to effective management, and rapid reporting is essential to provide timely advice. While photography has greatly improved the detail and speed of underwater data collection, image processing remains a bottleneck in reporting results. Our tools tap on artificial intelligence and computer vision to offer as new opportunities for increasing the capabilities of coral reef and marine monitoring.
A wealth of ocean monitoring data has been and is being collected on a daily basis. Most organizations, let alone individuals, do not have the time or ability to translate ocean data into actionable information, yet very large industries and millions of people rely on the ocean for their livelihoods and well-being. We provide a platform to upload, analyse and transfer technical information on the state of sites and species, collected on dives.
We integrate data from different technologies (satellites, drones, sensors) and perform analyses on the historical behaviour of different phenomena in specific marine environments; coral reefs, mangroves, aquaculture, offshore. The data available via the app includes: water quality parameters like chlorophyll-a, total suspended matter and turbidity as well as sea surface temperature.
We then apply prediction models and geospatial analysis to perform risk and impact assessments. The tool has played a significant roles in the selection of optimal sites for coral restoration or harvesting times for seafood cultivation.
3D models are useful for all scientific, educational and entertainment purposes. Things like growth rate, spread of disease, and how coral recovers from storms could never be measured precisely using the old techniques. Quantification of the surface area and volume of the coral is possible, providing hard numbers on the change in size and shape over time. 3D models can revolutionize your ability to track the changes in coral reefs and serves as an accurate baseline for future generations of reef surveyors.
Where data cannot be retrived from historical surveys, we aim to work with you to figure out the best methods for collecting data, whether through our partners, offering drone or aerial footage collection, even diving teams that can scan and record the state of underwater conditions. Through this, we offer an end-to-end service pipeline, from data collection, processing, storage and visualisation, on a case-by-case basis. We are happy to learn about your marine projects.
