If you’re not familiar with our Center for Fisheries Technology partner BioBase, they provide satellite and sonar imagery tech and analysis for habitat mapping. BioBase is composed of two different products, EcoSound and EcoSat. Ecosat processes satellite imagery to create shallow vegetation and benthic habitat maps. While, EcoSound uses off-the-shelf sonar technology and automatic cloud processing to create professional bathymetry, bottom composition, and aquatic vegetation maps. BioBase removes the labor intensive and high cost elements of acquiring high quality data very quickly so you can focus your efforts on aquatic resource management.
BioBase is for anyone interested in aquatic resources. Biologist, surveyors, hydropower companies, environmental agencies, fisheries management, municipal agencies, non-profit agencies, and even private pond owners. It is easy to use from start to finish no matter your skill level. BioBase has a continually updating blog offering tips, tricks and other success stories. As well as the Support Resources page loaded with step by step guides and walkthroughs as well as a getting started guide.
