Center for Ocean Mapping and Innovative Technologies
Providing NOAA with a world-class mapping center to develop unique technologies to map, identify, and respond to a variety of threats in the world’s ocean and coastal zones.
Earlier this month (laboring through Labor Day weekend), staff and students from the Center for Ocean Mapping and Innovative Technologies (COMIT) at the USF College of Marine Science (CMS) sailed aboard the R/V WT Hogarth to collect data in support of a potpourri of...
Written by: Jaden Crute (B.S. Engineering Student)Marine engineering isn’t typically something you would think of when imagining an engineer's potential career path. Despite this, it makes a lot of sense that the fields of marine science and engineering overlap. I...
As I step foot on board the Nancy Foster, it’s hard to believe I’m here. As we go around the lab making introductions, most people are in a field related to seafloor mapping, benthic habitats, geology, and sonar engineering. Once again, I am surrounded by marine scientists. As an archeologist I don’t quite fit that mold.
What we do
The intended benefits of COMIT will serve a diverse community of constituencies by developing, testing and implementing better, cheaper, and faster approaches to ocean and coastal mapping.
