Mocean One is the global subscription marketplace for ocean and sub-ocean data giving the world access to make business from the ocean. What problem are we solving? The oceans cover more than 70 per cent of the worlds surface, yet it remains largely unmapped. We know more about the surface of Mars than we do about the seabed and the values hidden in the deep. Aside from oil and gas the seabed is an untapped resource, and recent research indicates that marine minerals alone can generate nearly $1 trillion every year. There are many sources to information about the seabed, both commercial and publicly available. But without proper cleaning and standardizing the data is hard to act upon. Only when the data is combined and turned into actionable analytics can it be useful. Our breakthrough: * Share and combine data to paint one comprehensive picture * Increase value by giving insights in exchange for unused data * Help governments, investors and corporations find new business opportunities.
