Help create better charts

TeamSurv is a research project to help create better charts of coastal waters, by getting sailors to log GPS and depth data - see for more information. 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: the Thames Estuary up to the Wash, Poole to Chichester, and Brittany, otherwise you can purchase one at cost.
