Reef Support develops cutting-edge software to support our oceans.


Reef Support develops cutting-edge software to accelerate the transition from data to decisions to protect our oceans and coral reefs. At Reef Support, we are a marine solutions provider developing a suite of Geographic Information System (GIS) and artificial intelligence tools to reduce time and costs in the monitoring and processing of data of coastal activities, such as marine research and reef surveying. Our solutions are provided through Software as a Service (SaaS) and our APIs can be integrated in existing enterprise infrastructure. Our proprietary software,, is part of a reef manager’s toolkit to streamline MPA monitoring operations and environmental impact assessments. Our tools also extend to coastal businesses that rely on healthy reef systems: aquaculture and fisheries, beaches (tourism), maritime and coastal development sectors.
