Coastal eco-cartography

Coastal eco-cartographical studies consist of a series of maritime engineering and marine ecology studies, with their results perfectly structured in a GIS and associated databases for their correct use and exploitation in future projects and studies involving the Spanish coastline.

The basic issues undertaken by HIDTMA are:

  • Topographical studies
  • 3D bathymetric studies
  • Analysis of tides
  • Morphology of seabeds
  • Coastal dynamics and classification of beaches
  • Coastal ground utility plan
  • Natural heritage
  • Cultural heritage
  • Marine biology studies
  • Fisheries studies
  • Water quality and sediments
  • Ecological evaluation of the coastline
  • GIS and associated databases

Outstanding project
