What Our Clients Say

 By utilising the technology Total Hydrographic has on offer we were able to visually review the underwater surface to a greater level to what we have been able to do previously.

We were also able to utilise the surface models to gain a greater understanding of the condition of the reservoir to assist in efficient operation. 

Heath McMahon – Geospatial, Asset Data and Survey Services Team Leader.  Melbourne Water.

We are very satisfied with the quality of product received which addressed all required components of our scope of works.

 Total Hydrographic met our expectations on this project. I was very satisfied with both the response times and quality of content. Both Tim and Paul answered or responded by phone or email rapidly and chased up further information quickly when requested.

 We appreciate the very quick turnaround period from securing Total Hydrographic for the job to completion of the report prior to dates outlined in the request for quote.

 AECOM Environmental have worked with Total Hydrographic on a recent project in Victoria.  I was very satisfied with the quality of their work.  Tim and Paul both provided quick and comprehensive responses to all questions and requests for modifications to documentation or scope.

It was a great service all round and i would employ their services again in the future.  They more than met our expectations and there was nothing that they could have done better.  Definitely recommend – 5/5
