What is our data used for?

How is our data used?

Gardline offers a unique survey capability that combines the acquisition of physical, chemical and biological data in one comprehensive survey. The capability draws on our considerable experience in marine geophysics, hydrography, digital mapping and underwater engineering using its dedicated fleet of survey vessels to provide a fully integrated survey capability. We conduct over 40 surveys annually, producing detailed reports to meet our clients’ specifications.
