Ocean Mapping

Our strategy for ocean mapping extends beyond a single platform. We strive to capitalize on every maritime asset as a data collection opportunity - navigational aids, fishing vessels and more.Our strategy for ocean mapping extends beyond a single platform.

Collect data once, store closest to source, and use it many times.

Newfoundland and Labrador Seabed Atlas

Understanding the impact of mobile gear on the seafloor and benthos requires, an understanding of the location and extent of benthic habitat features (seafloor characteristics, energy regime), the location and extent of benthic communities (flora/fauna) and the location and extent of pre-existing perturbation.

With support from the Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation, the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture and the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Innovation, Trade and Rural Development, CTec has compiled a web-accessible digital seabed atlas for Newfoundland and Labrador waters.

This atlas, compiled from existing data, serves as a baseline to guide more detailed analysis of the impact of mobile gear on the seafloor and benthos in Newfoundland and Labrador waters, and a foundation upon which to build additional layers of data and information.
