Crowd-Sourced Bathymetry is the process of generating a harbor chart through collecting, enriching, processing, and aggregating depth (and other) measurements from a host of vessels, using standard navigation instruments, while engaged in routine maritime operations. This study explores the accuracy and limitations of one particular approach towards utilizing Crowd-Sourced data, comparing the results obtained from DockTech’s approach to that of a classic MBES survey. As DockTech is a for-profit startup that sells their product to various stakeholders in the maritime supply chain, a balance between protection of proprietary interest and scientific collaboration is necessary. As such, while specific details in regards to both chosen methodologies and their particular evaluations cannot be discussed, a general overview will be provided and the results of DockTech’s solution will be evaluated. This study is based on depth measurements collected by service vessels, active on a d.....
