TeamSurv is a ‘crowd sourcing’ project whose aim is to improve the depth data on marine charts, by asking volunteer sailors to take a little time to send in their observations.
Boats of all types and sizes record the data and send them via internet to be processed, then put at the disposal of the SHOM (France’s mapping agency) and other scientific establishments likely to use them. The more data TeamSurv obtain for an area, the more precise the grid for it will be.
The data recording equipment is loaned free of charge, and all the participants are free to access all the data.

Wherever you are sailing, if you would like to join the 250 boats supporting this project, just visit: www.teamsurv.eu
