Hydrography is defined as “the branch of applied science which deals with the measurement and description of the physical features of the navigable portion of the earth’s surface [seas] and adjoining coastal areas, with special reference to their use for the purpose of navigation or submarine installations.
Hydrographic surveying “looks” into the ocean to see what the sea floor looks like.

Coastal & Inland Survey Works
SPS directs field programs for hydrographic surveys, develops survey specifications, test new technology and improves procedures to increase efficiency in survey data acquisition, data processing, and chart production.
The effects of tides, combined with large amounts of water and waves from storms make coastal areas some of the most at-risk areas for flooding subsequently affect to installed submarine cables or for the future ones. SPS develop coastal maps and flood hazards accurately where many factors must be taken into account, such as the amount of development in the area, the types and strength of storms that historically have affected the area, and onshore and offshore elevations.
