The art of bathymetry

According to Hydro International’s current newsfeed of 23 May 10% to 15% of the ocean floor has been mapped at resolutions of 100-metre pixel size or better and the vast majority of this mapped area is within territorial waters. One way to significantly increase seafloor coverage is to outsource data collection to nonhydrographic vessels or ships of opportunity, it is understood.
