COASTAL ATLAS SURVEY
10m-wide belt assessment based on underwater images and habitat (sea grass, corals, sand, rocks) information that are captured using our own developed banca-towed platform (shark scan) with GPS-logger and underwatter camera attachment. The Coastal Atlas provides baseline information of the coastline that can be used for coastal planning for sustainable management.
WHAT IS ANTIPARA?
Antipara is a Spanish word means eyeglasses or spectacles and also a Philippine local dialect for “wooden goggles” used for diving.
Antipara Exploration lets you see clearly beneath the waters using machine vision algorithm for intelligent survey of maritime assets.
Our mission is to provide reliable visual information of maritime assets safer, accurate and cost effective inspection.
To solve this, Antipara Exploration created the Shark Scan System, a diverless system for coastal monitoring and assessment. By automating the whole process of coastal monitoring and assessment, Antipara Exploration can cover 25 km coastline in a day.
The Shark Scan System is capable of capturing various information including, such as, but not limited to, determining the percentage composition of different classes of underwater terrain, identifying marine resource (coral, sea grass, algae, sand, rocks), and many more.
