The Shallow Survey 2015 Organising Committee would like to give our final thanks to all speakers, session chairs, exhibitors, sponsors and of course Plymouth University, who all helped to make Shallow Survey 2015 such a great success.
Welcome to the Shallow Survey 2015 website, the home of information for the 7th International Conference on High Resolution Surveys in Shallow Water promoting progress in seabed mapping in the coastal environment.
The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency hosted "Shallow Survey 2015" and a number of associated events in Plymouth, Devon, United Kingdom, from 14-18 September 2015, in conjunction with Plymouth University, who as Principal Sponsors offered their world class facilities as the conference and exhibition venue.
The theme of the conference, 'High Resolution Surveys in Shallow Water' was explored using a "Common Data Set". The Common Data Set is a series of different surveys obtained by a range of equipment types and models over the same area of seabed. In this instance, the Common Data Set was collected within the superb natural harbour of Plymouth Sound during the summer of 2014. Production and dissemination of the Common Data Set allowed the delegates to analyse and compare the results from different survey equipment before submitting papers for the conference.
