Remotely operated boats offer convenience for hydrographic surveyors conducting shallow water inshore bathymetric surveys. Oceanscience Z-Boat 1800 offers a “turn key” solution and is particularly suited for fast and convenient volume surveys in industrial water storage ponds, tailing ponds, construction sites or hazardous locations. Instead of mobilizing a manned boat for a small survey area, simply launch the Z- boat and start surveying immediately. A single operator can conduct a survey at a much lower cost than a full survey crew. In addition, safety is maintained by not having personnel on the water.
