Nørresundby (DK) / Seefeld (D) – By using Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB), the Danish Geodata Agency and EOMAP are joining forces to contribute to the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) Bathymetry partnership, and to integrate the SDB data into the Danish Depth Model (DDM)
“Finding new ways to map shallow waters, where we only have very old data, and increasing the utilization of depth data for marine stakeholders and society is central in the goals of the Danish Hydrographic Office. Satellite technology shows great potential in this regard. We are therefore happy to contribute to this cooperation that benefits the users of both the DDM and EMODnet Bathymetry”, says Elizabeth Hagemann, Head of Office in the Danish Hydrographic Office.
“Denmark is particularly rich in shallow waters, with considerable parts mapped more than 100 years ago. For filling data gaps in large areas, SDB is widely approved as a very efficient technology. Together with existing bathymetric data, this cooperation project will thus help create a seamless shallow water grid of the Danish coastline and its hundreds of islands”, states Knut Hartmann, COO of EOMAP.
