Deakin Marine Mapping is a group of researchers from Deakin University led by Daniel Ierodiaconou focusing on mapping the seafloor and coastlines of Victoria and beyond.
Deakin University has invested in the most advanced oceanographic mapping technologies in the world. The latest generation seafloor mapping systems capable of the collection of thousands of soundings per minute is used to develop detailed pictures of our ocean floor.
This information is combined with biological data from remotely operated vehicles, baited camera systems and acoustically positioned towed video using modelling techniques to decipher patterns of distribution over large geographic areas.
We are also using our drone fleet to map and observe our coastlines and rocky shores.
We combine physical and biological observations with advanced analysis approaches including frequentist and machine learning to understand patterns and process.
