Monitoring with cameras

The development of research with cameras

Cameras above water

Bureau Waardenburg has been using camera systems for remote monitoring since 2002. Common uses are for monitoring wildlife tunnels, passages and the like. More recently, we have developed camera systems that provide more advanced features such as remote access, day and night visibility and powerful zoom capabilities. These cameras can provide real-time images direct to our offices or similar locations and also record all footage. These cameras are perfect for recording breeding birds without disturbance and for monitoring in remote locations where access is difficult.

Underwater camera work 

Since 2008 we have made use of a Novasub video system. This underwater camera provides images of the underwater environment directly to a laptop with the aid of a cable and additional lighting. These images can be saved as either video or still images. Thanks to the length of the cable (75m) we can work at a range of water depths. Within a matter of seconds we can view what lies under the water, meaning that we can visit a large number of sites in a short amount of time. The image is improved with the aid of a stabilizing frame and lights.

Recent uses include:

  • assessment of the seabed in bird rich areas in the Dutch Delta and North Sea;
  • investigation of the deoxygenation problem of lake Grevelingen in the Netherlands;
  • collecting underwater images of the Zeeuwse bank.
