Mapping & Hydrographic Surveys - Professional Hydrographic and Geophysical Survey Services

Mapping and Hydrographic Surveys (MHS) is an Australian company offering professional hydrographic and geophysical survey services to the coastal engineering, port development and maintenance, and offshore oil and gas industries.

Marine geophysical systems for port development and maritime engineering investigations

MHS has gained extensive experience in all marine environments, from the open ocean to harbours, dams and creeks. MHS specialises in remote locations and has the technological knowledge and equipment to accurately identify the seabed for greenfield port investigations, engineering design, dredging surveys and under keel clearance surveys.


MHS can offer several marine seismic and sub bottom profiling systems such as high-resolution BOOMER and PINGER systems, CHIRP systems and bottom-towed marine refraction systems, all of which are well-known and well-accepted marine geophysical systems.

MHS has become aware of the growing trend for port development and marine infrastructure engineering to require broader and deeper geophysical investigations, and that current 'sub bottom profiling' geophysical techniques are falling short of these requirements.

Operating Safety Management Plan to meet maritime and offshore oil industries requirements

A culture revolving around safety has resulted in NIL accidents in over forty years of operation, frequently in remote locations; MHS operates to a Safety Management Plan that meets the requirements of the maritime engineering and offshore oil industries.


MHS philosophy is "just because we have been doing something for a while doesn't necessarily mean it is the best way to do it". As a result the company is continuously assessing its procedures, equipment, performance and quality in order to provide the best possible service to its client in the most effective manner.

MHS services cover a broad range of hydrographic disciplines, with expertise available in the following areas:

  • Precision Navigation and positioning;
  • Marine geophysical surveys;
  • Bathymetry/charting surveys;
  • Offshore construction;
  • Side Scan Sonar clearance surveys;
  • Environmental monitoring;
  • Seabed coring & sampling;
  • Current metering
  • Tidal Studies

MHS background of more than forty years on projects within Australia, South East Asia, Papua New Guinea, Africa, the Pacific and Middle East and an impressive list of clients, illustrates its commitment to provide its clients with quality survey services at a highly competitive cost. This commitment is backed by a policy of building on the expertise of its highly qualified and experienced staff and embracing the latest technology in positioning systems, sensors and software.
