SeaZone HydroSpatial 2 Base is now available ‘off the shelf’ for 40 per cent of the Worlds Ocean. So whether it’s mapping for Miami or Marseilles, The Seychelles or Salalah, HydroSpatial 2 | Base sets the benchmark. HydroSpatial 2 | Base is the foundation layer in the new generation HydroSpatial 2 family - and is the first product to be released. It is the definitive marine reference map incorporating large-scale, authoritatively sourced, marine geographic datasets. The content is processed to form a continuous vector layer dataset, with a well structured and defined feature and attribute model, providing the best possible marine mapping experience.
HydroSpatial 2 | Base is a consistent and seamless marine base map that is equally applicable to an offshore renewables project in the Americas, an energy project in Africa or Marine Spatial Planning in Europe. Where ever your project is - SeaZone can probably support your data needs.
SeaZone’s new HydroSpatial 2 product range sets new benchmarks for ease of use and global coverage for marine spatial planning, site selection, engineering design, installation and maintenance.
It meets the requirements for a globally consistent product containing a comprehensive, but not exhaustive, set of features to support marine planning decisions – in some cases it will be all you need, however it can be used in conjunction with your own data or data from other SeaZone products.
HydroSpatial 2 | Base has been developed as our customers have told us they wanted the benefits of our flagship product SeaZone HydroSpatial, worldwide. As a result, we have gone right back to the beginning and re-engineered the product bottom-up. A daunting challenge but the benefits include an enhanced data model, allowing for intuitive feature filtering; geo-processing and spatial analysis to create customised data outputs and map views. It is available for regions where content is captured to scales greater than or equal to 1:1,500,000. That equates (as of April 2012) to around 82,000 tiles around the world or 40 per cent of the World’s ocean.
We support a wide range of GIS Formats as standard so although the product is new you shouldn’t need to upgrade your GIS to use our data.
HydroSpatial 2 | Base includes a feature catalogue which is a new innovation that enables the user to get more out of our data. The feature catalogue is a reference of all the objects in HydroSpatial 2 | Base and it can be browsed and searched to find a given feature and its associated definition. It has a simple aim – to ensure that everyone using our marine mapping products understands what the objects refer to and what attributes of that object can be queried.
HydroSpatial 2 | Base is supplied with a full metadata record compliant with ISO19115/39 standards and consistent with the metadata discovery profiles of Inspire, Gemini2 and Medin.
