TeamSurv is a research project
to help create better charts
of coastal waters, by getting sailors to log GPS
data - see www.teamsurv.eu
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.
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.
