Announcing New Product: BioBase Stormwater

Get a Lowrance, 12-mo BioBase Subscription, and GIS Layer Package for only $900! 
($800 renewal price)

Restoring and protecting water quality in urban landscapes starts by having a comprehensive understanding of the storage capacity of ponds designed to treat and filter stormwater runoff.  Stormwater ponds that have filled in over time don't serve their purpose and pollution of higher profile downstream waters often result.  Does your municipality have up to date bathymetric profiles of all of municipal stormwater ponds?  For the price of a song, BioBase can help municipalities acquire and manage this information.

Assemble a fully outfitted mapping kayak for less than $600

The full kit shown above was just over $500 USD (including the kayak) and pieces were purchased from a range of retailers (BioBase sells Lowrance, Lowrance Accessories, and some RAM mounts direct).  Eligible* subscribers taking advantage of BioBase Stormwater (Essentials Package) get an Elite 5 TI Sonar/GPS Chartplotter for an equivalent of $100.  Swiftly glide in concentric circles while you passively log your sonar and GPS.  Follow your trail as you work your way into the middle of the pond.  Less than an hour later, you should be done with all the hard work.  Upload your Sonar Log from your MicroSD card to BioBase and let our cloud-servers create high resolution bathymetry maps for you automatically in less than an hour!

Go fully autonomous with Platypus robotic boats

BioBase has partnered with Platypus LLC to offer ultra rapid, fully autonomous solutions data acquisition and processing.  At a cost that rapidly decreases with the larger number of ponds you elect to map, Platypus staff or partners will travel to your municipality and deploy one to several autonomous boats enabling them to map large numbers of ponds over a short period of time.  This video shows the process in action with their Lutra prop boat.  These ultra light boats draft inches of water and reduce labor and occupational safety hazards associated with manned boats.  Learn more at and contact them about their pond mapping services

With the Stormwater Professional Subscription, our GIS staff will summarize pond statistics and package into a GIS Layer

For $900 (Stormwater Professional Package), you'll get all the benefits of the basic Stormwater Essentials subscription, but our GIS staff will take it a step further and summarize pond statistics (size, max depth, water volume) and assemble both point and polygon boundary data into a GIS Layer.  Additional GIS Services are available to suite the unique needs of your municipality to efficiently manage water resource assets and comply with state and federal regulations.

*Eligible customers - Local units of government or private service providers who remain within defined municipal boundaries.  Private service providers can purchase multiple subscriptions for multiple municipalities if desired.  Qualifying customers are eligible for one Elite-Ti.
