Who We Are:
President Thomas Jefferson created the U.S. Coast Survey in 1807 to provide nautical charts that would help the young nation with safe shipping, national defense, and maritime boundaries. Two centuries later, Coast Survey – now an office within NOAA – continues to provide navigation products and services that ensure safe and efficient maritime commerce on America’s oceans and coastal waters, and in the Great Lakes.
Innovative applications beyond navigation emerge as researchers harness evolving technologies. These advancements give Coast Survey tremendous opportunities to help the nation meet the challenges of the changing environment. Applying the newest advancements for survey and detection, data adds to our scientific knowledge of the coastal seafloor. With this knowledge, we can simulate sea level effects on coasts and ecosystems, identify sensitive marine habitats, select alternative energy sites, identify geological hazards, and predict the impact of environmental conditions on species and habitats.
OUR GREATEST resource is our people.
Our mission is to collect, compile, and identify geospatial and geophysical information that provides the best possible solution offering the lowest risk for our clients.
Local around the globe, we excel at executing remote and challenging surveys. We have successfully completed thousands of surveys in over 22 countries around the world for over 330 clients. These range from inland surveys to deep ocean seabed exploration and mapping projects.
