Marine / Coastal

Aquatic hyperspectral applications such as the mapping of sea floor substrate, submerged vegetation, bathymetry and water constituents are the most common examples in the marine and coastal environments. Hyperspectral mapping offers a unique opportunity to provide ‘state of the art’ baseline mapping for regular monitoring of environmentally sensitive areas.

The HyMap sensor is well suited for marine and aquatic applications due to the high signal to noise in the visible wavelength region and coupled with the SWIR modules, data corrections such as sun glint removal are now possible.
