Marine video and stills analysis

Marine Video & Seabed Imagery Analysis

Our team analyses underwater videos and photographs to identify species, habitats and anthropogenic influences.

Epibenthic surveys, using video and stills photography as a tool to identify species and habitat types (biotopes), is becoming widely used by both governmental and commercial organisations.

This technique allows assessment of the seabed without taking a physical sample to keep disturbance of the environment to a minimum. Since its first use, our taxonomists have provided a service in the analysis of video and stills both on-board vessels and back at our laboratory facility.

Thomson’s analysts use the most up-to-date technology and software to ensure the data we produce is meaningful, valid and meets the requirements of regulatory bodies. Our imagery analysis includes the identification and quantification of subtidal epibenthic species, the classification of habitats, and assessment of anthropogenic influences.
