Hydrographic Surveying

As part of our advanced survey technology services, raSmith offers hydrographic surveying, enabling us to study the underwater depth of ponds, lakes, rivers and streams. Our survey staff utilizes our hydrone (remote control survey boat) to collect data underwater. The hydrone is equipped with a multibeam echo sounder – a sonar system that emits sound waves that bounce off the bottom of a water body and are returned to a receiver, enabling the user to determine water depth.

The ability to complete hydrographic surveys is another step forward for raSmith in providing advanced survey technology services as well as enhancing our watershed planning, design and construction services.
