Monitor cyanobacteria, algae and weeds in lakes and seas from your desktop in near real-time
The early-warning information service from satellite remote sensing
Whether you are a water utility or government department, a company selling water treatment technologies, or a non-commercial user, we have a package to fit your needs and budget.
CyanoLakes is the first service that can distinguish harmful cyanobacteria from other algae. In offering relevant information in near real-time to subscribers worldwide via the cloud, it presents a great example of how to take research findings to commercial services.

Our product was developed through funding from the European Commission Project No. 730141 and Water Research Commission Projects K5/2458 and K5/2518.
Monitoring on a national scale is very expensive, logistically challenging and labour intensive. The [service] will allow monitoring of waterbodies not in the current network… [and] will allow us to optimise our monitoring network and streamline our activities. The data generated will lead to a significantly improved ability to manage and mitigate the harmful effects of potentially toxic cyanobacteria blooms and nutrient enrichment… which are widespread in SA dams.

Our information is derived exclusively from satellite remotely sensed data. Our open-source algorithm has been used to monitor hundreds of waterbodies around the world, has been independently validated by scientists, and cited hundreds of times in scientific literature.
Our vision is to be a leading provider of operational services, with global coverage, significantly increasing the use of earth observation derived information for water health, safety and management
