Survey Coordination Tool

The AusSeabed Survey Coordination Tool was developed to support coordination of survey activities across the Australian seafloor mapping community. Access to the Survey Coordination Tool requires a simple registration process. Governmental and academic entities, and others conducting seafloor mapping surveys are able to consider the areas of interest during mapping planning activities. ASB encourages collaboration and leveraging of opportunities based on common interests. The three tools contained within the SCT are independent of one another. The ASB SCT was developed by FrontierSI on behalf of AusSeabed.

  1. Survey Plans - Communicate planned mapping surveys to notify the seabed mapping community.
  2. Areas of Interest – identify your organisation’s marine area of interest. Information entered into the tool appears in the AusSeabed Data Portal.
  3. HIPP Request submission – The Australian Hydrographic Office’s HydroScheme Industry Partnership Program (HIPP) is the commercial acquisition program that undertakes focused hydrographic survey activities to support national charting priorities and safety of navigation. For more information please visit The Australian Hydrographic Office.
