The History Timeline below shows the evolution of SeaZone from its initial inception as a business unit within Metoc plc, a leading UK marine consultancy, through to its establishment as an independent company and growth to its current position as market leader for marine geographic information, software and services.
Modern oceanographic measurement systems such as Acoustic Doppler
Current Profilers (ADCP) are capable of producing large volumes of
geographically and temporally referenced data for which simple ASCII
output is not an option.
SeaZone GeoTemporal comprises a suite of software to quality control,
analyse and present complex survey and environmental monitoring data,
now commonplace in many organisations and projects. GeoTemporal
provides the means to import specialist data into a common GIS
environment, allowing access to advanced query, manipulation and
dissemination tools and making information easily accessible across
project teams and organisations.
Traditionally, tidal information has been obtained from published tide
tables and tidal atlases with no easy way for tidal data to be
incorporated into other information systems or combined with other data
for comparison and spatial planning.
