Florida depends on the oceans, yet its waters have not been extensively mapped to the highest standards. While there is a need for marine spatial data for a wide range of applications and issues, there is also a need to develop data acquisition, processing, and analytical workflows and to integrate different surveying instruments that can capture the complex and extensive coastal environment – both above and below the waterline. This note provides an overview of the research performed by scientists at the School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences, University of Florida, in the field of hydrography and marine geomatics.
