Smart Mooring Device

Smart Mooring

Easily integrate a Temperature and/or a Pressure sensor with Spotter as a hub for power and connectivity. No configurations needed: just connect and access your Smart Mooring data right away from our API and dashboard.

With Smart Mooring, anyone from a citizen scientist to a natural resource manager can equip Spotter with any combination of sensors in the water column for immediate access to that data.

Case Study: USGS/NOAA Total Water Level and Coastal Change Forecast

Next-generation real-time oceanographic instrumentation

USGS is deploying Smart Moorings to collect real-time water level data. This information will be used to assess the skill of the USGS/NOAA Total Water Level and Coastal Change Forecast, which provides real-time forecasts of water levels and coastal change along nearly 3,000 miles of the U.S. Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
