Help create better charts

TeamSurv is a project to help create better charts of coastal waters, by getting sailors to log GPS and depth data - see www.teamsurv.eu for more information. For example, in Britain the UKHO states that only 50% of Britain's coastal waters are adequately surveyed, and they concentrate on areas used by commercial shipping. Join TeamSurv and help update the charts and fill in the gaps.

We are asking for people to get involved by logging data and uploading it to the web site - as a logger you will be able to see not just your data, but also that contributed by everyone else in the project.

You can log the data by using either logging software that runs on a PC, or a small hardware logger that writes the data to a memory stick, uploading the data through our web site.

The software is a free download from our web site. For the hardware logger, we have a limited number that we can provide on free loan to those who go to sea in our trial areas (Poole to Chichester, and Thames Estuary to the Wash), otherwise you can purchase one at cost.

Regards,

Tim Thornton

The website did not mention whether the project could use say a Lowrance sonar log file?

TeamSurv - Lowrance sonar log file

Hi,
Apologies for the late reply. At present we don't support this, but if you or others wanted to supply us data in this format we could quickly add it - we're just adding the GPX format for this reason.
If you want to discuss it out of the forum, e-mail me at tt@smartcomsoftware.com.
Tim
