Map Shallow Waters from the Comfort of your Desk
SDB-Online - The WebApp for Worldwide Bathymetry
Let's simplify your workflow!
SDB-Online is the new cloud-based software to create high-resolution bathymetric grids for shallow waters. It builds on EOMAP’s expertise in Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB), a technique to map water depth from space. With SDB-Online, coastal engineers, surveyors, modellers or scientists can create high-res bathymetry – easily and online. – SDB-Online allows smart coastal mapping with these benefits:
High-resolution bathymetry data of shallow waters – anywhere on Earth
Access relevant satellite images within minutes – from the comfort of your desk
Generate bathymetry grids on any browser. No need for costly hard- or software.
From the selection of your area until download of SDB grids – pay-per-use
* Once registered, you will receive access to SDB-Online. EOMAP’s data analyst will guide you through in short videos.
Unless you press “Confirm Order”, no costs will arise.
Have a go and enjoy!
EOMAP's technology in a nutshell
- SDB-Online works in a cloud environment with multiple processes running in parallel. You benefit by very fast processing times.
- The WebApp enables you to analyse shallow waters up to 1x Secchi Disc Depth. Depending on the water clarity, this ranges from 10m in the Southern Baltic to +20m in clear waters of the Caribbean.
- To even increase accuracy, you can book manual QA/QC by our experts and receive a seafloor classification on demand.
- SDB-Online has been developed in the course of the 4S project. Learn more about the validation of SDB-Online in these use cases.
- Here is more details on the technology behind.
Trust us on SDB
Satellite-Derived Bathymetry is our key expertise. Coastal planners and engineers, surveyors and hydrographers all over the world value EOMAP’s SDB expertise and data. In 2015 and 2022, EOMAP was selected top-ranked SDB provider by the UK Hydrographic Office. Moreover, bathymetric data by EOMAP are featured in nautical charts and the European harmonized bathymetry grid EMODnet Bathymetry, and we were the first to provide a high-resolution SDB of the entire Great Barrier Reef. Since 2021, we are partnering with Seabed 2030 – a worldwide initiative to map the entire ocean floor by 2030.

What users say:
EOMAP’s SDB-Online is delivering fast and accurate results without the need of ground control data, processing 10 Sentinel-2 scenes in less than one hour. The “Combine ” option is a game changer in challenging locations, especially with frequent cloud cover or heavy vessel traffic.
Véronique Jegat, Senior Geo-Data Engineer at Fugro
We're integrating SDB-Online into our software solutions via API. During prototyping, I was impressed how quickly things came together for the two development teams. Particularly elegant was, how EOMAP combined multiple images of the same area to give the best possible depth estimate. The workflow is already very smooth, and now we‘re keen to work with early adopters to advance these tools.

Experts managing or studying coastal shallow waters will experience an incredible time and information gain: Within minutes they can trigger hundreds of automated processing routines and receive high-res bathymetry data for their projects.
